Resurrection Power!

RESURRECTION POWER! 

By Pastor Bjørn Pedersen

The Spirit of God, who raised Jesus from the dead, lives in you. And just as God  raised Christ Jesus from the dead, he will give life to your mortal bodies by this same Spirit living within you (Romans 8:11 NLT).

The Easter Season scans a wide range of emotional experiences from extravagant celebration and joy on Palm Sunday, to suffering and pain on Good Friday, and culminating with Resurrection Power and  exuberant joyful shouting, “He is Risen!” on Easter Morning!

Easter Morning is the exclamation mark of the Christian faith! God raised Jesus from death and the grave. He is victorious over the devil, the kingdom of darkness, even death itself. The Lord brings hope of eternal life to all who accept the redemptive work of Christ on the cross and receive the Holy Spirit’s resurrection power to rise in glory, spending eternity with God – Father, Son and Holy Spirit – and everlasting worship and praise in Spirit and Truth to God’s eternal glory!

It was the Holy Spirit Who raised Jesus from the dead on Easter Morning. According to the Apostle Paul (Romans 8:11), this same Holy Spirit “lives in you.” That means you are filled with Resurrection Power! Let’s give greater access for the Holy Spirit to manifest His Resurrection Power in and through our thoughts, words and deeds!  Now God will be even more glorified, His kingdom on earth strengthened and expanded, and His bride fully prepared for His soon return!

The facts of Easter are clear and irrefutable:

  • First, just as Jesus had promised – He died and rose again.
  • Second, Jesus’ physical resurrection shows that He is the living Christ and ruler over the eternal Kingdom of God.
  • Third, because Jesus rose from the dead, we His followers can be sure of our resurrection into eternal life when that time comes. Jesus was victorious over death. Death is not the end. There will be eternal life with Jesus for all those who believe in Him!
  • Fourth, the resurrection power that raised Jesus from the dead is available to all His followers today. God’s resurrection power will transform  our sinful bodies into eternal life in Christ Jesus.
  • Fifth, the resurrection power of Jesus provides anointing and strength to be a witness to share the Good News of eternal life in Jesus Christ (by grace through faith) with a lost and chaotic  world. Jesus is the King of kings and the Lord of lords!

BE BLESSED WITH RESURRECTION POWER!

Our Resurrected Lord and Savior, bless all PWI partners, families and churches with a double portion of resurrection power to pray, intercede, do spiritual warfare and to serve Jesus with greater Holy Spirit anointing and strength than ever before to Your glory, honor and praise in Jesus’ Everlasting Name.

Hallelujah! Amen!
