👉MEMORY VERSE: _”But is now made manifest by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel:”_ (2Timothy 1:10)
The Lord Jesus Christ has resurrected from the dead, and this victory is for all those who believe in Him. In every kingdom, there is a power which determines the number of people who are affiliated to it. In every kingdom, there is a blood covenant; whether the blood of animals or that of men. This is what gives them more power. The more this blood is shed, the more their power is enhanced to maintain themselves in existence.
In the Kingdom of our Lord Jesus Christ, His own precious blood made covenant with all His believers. After He shed His blood for us, He resurrected on the third day with great power and strength. This power in His resurrection is unimaginable according to natural understanding. One who believes in Jesus Christ is not just a member or slave to Him, but sons and daughters of the Most High, unlike the other kingdoms that condemn men.
Turn your Bibles to Matthew 28:1-8. The tomb of our dear Lord Jesus Christ was sealed with a large rock and despite it, death couldn’t hold Him bound. Angels rolled it away. When the Spirit of God came upon Him, He resurrected from the dead. This is telling us that, we are born afresh by faith, to serve the Lord Jesus Christ according to His purpose for coming to die and resurrect for us. The Apostles of Jesus Christ locked up themselves in a room because they were afraid of the authorities. Jesus’ resurrection broke the bonds of fear, and when He entered into the room He revealed Himself to them, and His peace came upon them (John 20:19-23).
By the resurrection power of Jesus Christ, all fears are conquered: His peace to work for His Kingdom has come upon us. The joy to serve the Lord and win souls for Him is the result of the resurrection of Master Jesus Christ. One who continues to sin, shall not get this great enabling power in God’s peace and joy to work for Him in holiness.
The Lord’s resurrection power is fully seen and experienced in the wholeness of the Holy Spirit. Beloved, this power has been imparted into all the joint heirs of Christ. No kind of gift or treasure in this world , can be compared to the power of the Holy Spirit which makes us sons of God, stewards in His kingdom, and we have gained the power to overcome the world. Preach Christ among unbelievers and sinners who represent dangerous wolves. _”Whosoever sins ye remit, they are remitted unto them; and whosoever sins ye retain, they are retained.”_(John 20:23) If multitudes of people do not end up in Heaven, then it is due to our wickedness in the reluctance to preach the Word of Salvation to them; because, you didn’t allow the Lord to forgive them their sins.
What do you have for the world? It shouldn’t be any thing perishable like money and others, but present the life in the Resurrection Power of Jesus Christ to them. You cannot possess the power of His resurrection, and live alongside the flesh. Ears without obedience is dead, like an eye that beholds vanity (Romans 8:11). As we celebrate the resurrection of Christ today, serving the Lord in this new life must be the reason why we are still alive.
*PRAYER*: Master Jesus Christ, fill me with your resurrection power, that I may serve you. *AMEN*
