The Power of His Ressurection

“I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and his incomparably great power for us who believe.  That power is like [or “according to”, ESV] the working of his mighty strength, which he extered in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at the right hand in the heavenly realms…”  (Ephesians 1:18-20)

This is marvelous–the same power that raised Christ from the dead is ours day to day.  This is the power we can cling to, power that is made perfect in our weakness (2 Cor 12:9).  What a great Father we have!

Let us imitate Paul and join with him in declaring, “I want to know Christ and the power of his ressurection…”  Philippians 3:10 (NIV)
