The Power of the Resurrection

“So the resurrection means we are forgiven and transformed by the power of the Living Lord. Sin and death have no power over us. We can overcome every temptation and endure every trial because of the resurrection. The risen Christ lives in us day by day, enabling us to walk in victorious faith and obedience. This is not behavior modification. It is the living, transformed power of Jesus! We have a new life in Christ”–Jack Graham.

“Only the church offers Jesus–the gospel is our exclusive distinctive. The truth that Jesus Christ died to give us His righteousness–that we’re no longer working our way to goodness or God on our own–is life and peace to the average over-scheduled, performance driven life. People come to the church because they are looking for something they don’t think they can find anywhere else. Give it to them. The church’s best content will always contain a supernatural thread that offers a taste of deep spiritual life beyond a well-managed life”–Tony Morgan.

“If we have Christ in us, we have full access to God’s power and His promises to live with a confident heart. But it won’t just happen because its possible. We have to take action. . . .we need to get intentional about tuning our thoughts into God’s thoughts toward us, every day”–Renee Swope.

“If the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, he who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will give life to your mortal bodies also through his Spirit which dwells in you”–Romans 8:11.
