From the Heart
In Matthew 28:5,6 “But the angel answered and said to the women, 'Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. He is not here; for He is risen, as He said. Come see the place where He lay.'”
It is wonderful that we serve a risen Savior. But what makes this even more powerful is what Paul shared with the church in Ephesus. In Ephesians 1:19,20 “and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places,”
Every day that resurrection power of God that raised Jesus from the dead is available to us. Paul encouraged his readers to remember the surpassing greatness of God's power at work in them. For us that means that no matter what is thrown your way, with God's power, He strengthens us to be able to overcome.
This helps us to understand Paul’s desire in Philippians 3:10 when he writes, “that I may know him and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being conformed to His death.”
Paul knew and experienced that resurrection power of God throughout his ministry, and wanted to know more of it. It should be our desire to know more of God's resurrection power in our lives each and every day.
