Our Gains from Jesus Christ’s resurrection.

Posted on Mon, Apr 25, 2011

This is the power that fuels our zeal for humility - a much needed virtue in our world today. It shapes us daily to engage only in activities that are pleasing to God. It confronts sins in our lives and makes our stubborn wills seek forgiveness with penitential tears whenever we sin.


One of the many gains from the resurrection of Jesus Christ is the power along which His resurrection brings. It began with the eleven apostles and others who had witnessed the resurrected Christ. These previously disillusioned and cowardly folks became so dramatically changed and consummate in their belief that in their ensuing crusade to spread that faith, no torture, nor death threats or even death itself could stall their quest or deter them. For example, Peter who had earlier sworn that he never knew Jesus Christ suddenly became bold. On the spot, he preached and brought over three thousand people to his belief.


It is this power for which Apostle Paul sought and said doubtlessly, “I want to know Christ and the power of his resurrection”. Thus, he considered everything a loss compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ Jesus. Philippians 3:10

My friends, the same power is available to help you rise above your difficulties and problems or help you to contain them while they last. The power that raised Jesus Christ 2000 years ago from death is available to you today, on this resurrection Sunday. But you first must know God, the source of that power. And then ask him for it in child-like faith. May the joy and victory that Jesus Christ brought in his resurrection abide with you today and always.
