Resurrection - The Fact, The Power And The Hope
We look back to Christ’s resurrection. We ‘remember Jesus Christ, risen from the dead’ (2 Timothy 2:8). We look forward to our own resurrection. We will be ‘raised’ – ‘imperishable… in glory… in power… a spiritual body’ (1 Corinthians 15:42-44). Looking back to His resurrection and looking forward to our own resurrection, we are to live, here and now, in ‘the power of His resurrection’ (Philippians 3:10). We believe the fact of the resurrection. We live in the power of the resurrection. We rejoice in the hope of the resurrection. With ‘resurrection’ faith in the ‘resurrection’ God, let us live the ‘resurrection’ life as a ‘resurrection’ people. In Christ, there is ‘victory’: glorious, eternal, heavenly victory (1 Corinthians 15:54-57). Let us serve Him: ‘Be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord’ (1 Corinthians 15:58).
