Romans 8:11 (ESV)
If the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, he who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit who dwells in you.
There’s some pretty powerful stuff going on here…Holy Spirit life forming and raising stuff. And that power, is in you. Wow! Holy Spirit power is locked within you and I, and it all comes through faith in Christ. Our connection to Jesus forever links us with God’s heavenly power source. Here’s the thing, Jesus wasn’t just dead, He was more than dead. The weight of all of humanities sin was upon Him and satan’s hands firmly gripped Him. For all intents and purposes, He was completely surrounded and in the midst of satan’s stronghold. Satan thought he won a great victory, not just over God’s Son, but over God Himself. But, He forgot about the Spirit of God and at just the right time, when the enemy was gloating, Holy Spirit turned on the power and the game was over. Within Nano-seconds of Holy Spirit power being released, Christ was raised from the dead and our Savior’s total victory was complete. And friends, that same power is in you. Wow! Is it any wonder we rejoice in the Joy of a Spirit-Filled Life.
