Do You Live It?

April 30, 2022 Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth

I pray that . . . you may know . . . what is the immeasurable greatness of his power toward us who believe, according to the mighty working of his strength. —Ephesians 1:18–19

In Ephesians 1, Paul prayed that the Ephesians would know the immeasurable greatness of God’s power in their lives. The same power that He exercised “in Christ by raising him from the dead and seating him at his right hand in the heavens” (v. 20).

That means that the very same power God sent forth to raise Christ from the dead and to cause Him to be seated at the right hand of the Father in heavenly places is at work in us. That same power to obey God, to defeat sin, to walk with God, to love Him and please Him is available to us as followers of Christ.

So, the question isn’t so much if the resurrection matters. We see that it does. The question we need to be asking is: do we live as if Christ really rose from the dead?

Make it Personal

Read Colossians 3:1–4, then examine your life as you ask, “Am I living today in resurrection power?”
