I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
What now? What now? Now that we have been redeemed by the Christ Himself, what now?
Well, we live out the love that has been given to us!
When Christ lives in us, we must realize the incredible power of what we are experiencing! The greatest power in the universe now lives in us and through us! That means that:
“…with God, all things are possible.” (Matthew 19:26)
How do we know this is true? How do we absolutely know that with God, all things are possible?
Because we believe and we know that God raised Christ from the dead, thereby overcoming the most destructive force on earth! God raised Jesus Christ from the dead, and with that power, He is living in us!
In the movie “Paris, Je t’aime”, a middle aged American woman named Carol makes her dream trip to Paris and she visits the famous Pere LaChaise Cemetery. While standing in front of the gravesites of some of the most famous people in history, she realizes the fact that in death, these people are completely powerless. No matter how powerful and influential they were in life, at this point in time, they are powerless. And she realizes her own power simply by the fact that she is alive.
Let us realize the amazing power that is in us!
Life is more powerful than death, and the power of Christ living in us is the most powerful life in all of creation!
That is why a Spiritual change in an individual is possible; that is why a community can be changed; that is why so much can be overcome in this world! It is the power of God living in us.
Understand the power that we are calling upon when we pray…the power of God in Christ! And with that power, all things are possible!!
He invites us to partner with Him in this journey through life, and the adventure awaits. He is alive. His power is made perfect in our weakness (2 Cor.12:9), and with Him, ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE!
Thank you for the Gospel. Now, let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, knowing that with you, all things are possible!
In Jesus’ name we pray,
