living proofDo you have the Power? Yes, you do!!

Adapted and inspired from Easter Sermon at Covenant Fellowship ~Pastor Matt Price

We celebrated Easter yesterday, my favorite day of the year.

Resurrection Sunday: New Life. New beginnings. Freedom, Hope, Restoration, Forgiveness and Unspeakable Joy! The greatest gift and the greatest news, an answer to all of our pain and suffering, a permanent response to our sin and brokenness: Jesus chose you and he chose me! He chose all of humanity that day on Calvary and no one is excluded!

He displayed God’s perfect power and divine plan when He rose from the dead and His resurrection gives His followers the power too!

Ephesians 1:19-20New Living Translation (NLT)

I also pray that you will understand the incredible greatness of God’s power for us who believe him.

This is the same mighty power that raised Christ from the dead and seated him in the place of honor at God’s right hand in the heavenly realms.

What does Resurrection Power mean to us?

We have HOPE.

We have the Hope and assurance that we will spend eternity with Jesus. WE have Hope that despite the hurts and disappointment that we may experience, we have a Savior who walks through each day with us, offering new mercies in each new moment.

We BELONG.

We belong to Him. We are his adopted children. We have a permanent and eternal family in the kingdom of God.

We are REDEEMEED.

Let the redeemed of the Lord say so! Sooooooooooooooooooooooooo.

I have been redeemed from the darkest of places and I am sooooooo super grateful for this powerful truth in my life as a believer. God has redeemed my life in the most miraculous of ways.

I once was lost, but now I am found.  He saved a wretch like me!

I was such a wretch, filthy and covered in the slime and shame of my sin and He plucked me out of the miry clay and showed me a new way to live. I live redeemed. I am redeemed. He did this for me and He can do it for you too!!

We are SANCTIFIED.

We are washed clean. We are purified by His blood. We are made whole. We are made righteous because of what He accomplished on the cross and in His resurrection power.

We are EMPOWERED.

We are empowered to live powerful lives, full of His resurrection and redeeming power. In His strength and in His power, nothing is impossible!   We are empowered to lead others to their freedom and to be hope-givers and dream-restorers in Jesus’ mighty name!  We are empowered to love GOD and others with all of our heart, soul, strength and mind.

We have PURPOSE.

We are given a purpose and a mission, a daily assignment: to make God famous and lead others into a personal relationship with Christ. We are on assignment in our homes, in our work place, in our day to day adventures. Each of our moments matters for eternity.  We have been given a mission to love boldly and stand up for Jesus, by putting His love and grace on display.

You were made by God and for God and until you understand that, life will never make sense.”
Rick Warren

CHALLENGE:

What would happen to you and the people around you if you chose to live each moment with purpose and walk in His resurrection power?
