I want to know Christ and the power of his resurrection… (Philippians 3:10).
I’m gonna go out on a limb here and say that the resurrection is the most powerful event in history.
More powerful than Creation?
I think so.
More powerful than Kirk Gibson’s pinch-hit home run in the 1988 World Series?
Oh, yes…even that.
When he rose from the grave, Jesus, in one fell swoop, ended the captivity of…well…everyone. Death, the great enemy of all mankind, was crushed under the heel of the Son of God.
That there’s power, my friend.
Beloved, do you understand that, right here, right now, smack in the middle of a Tuesday, you have that same power at work in you?
The power that broke Death in the world is breaking it in your heart.
Don’t ask me how. I have almost as much trouble with how as I do with why.
But I’m pretty good with is.
And it is, Beloved.
