The Power of the Resurrection!

Click here to listen to blog
I want you to know about the great and mighty power that God has for us followers. It is the same wonderful power he used  when he raised Christ from death and let him sit at his right side in heaven.  There Christ rules over all forces, authorities, powers, and rulers. He rules over all beings in this world and will rule in the future world as well.
Ephesians 1:19-21

Have you ever been to a wax museum?  Skilled artists mold and paint wax to look like famous people both living and dead.  If you did not already know that the image was not living, at first glance you might really believe you are looking at a live person! 

Without the power of the resurrected Christ in your life you are no more alive than an image in a wax museum.  On the outside you may look just like you should, and as a powerless "Christian" you may even be able to say the "right words" to make others believe that you are indeed alive.  But when the heat of life comes, you will melt as quickly as a figure in a wax museum!

But after the Power of the Resurrection changes you into the image of Jesus Himself, you will appear to be alive because you are!  Don't be satisfied with a life that simply looks like it is filled with the power of God, turn your heart completely to Jesus Christ and let Him and the power of His Resurrection make your heart of wax into a living and breathing disciple of Christ!

"Lord Jesus, help me today to know more of what the Power of the Resurrection can mean for my life.  May my heart come to life because of what You did on the Cross!  And may You be praised forever.  Amen."
