Resurrection Power = Power to Stand

And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit, who lives in you. (Romans 8:11)

This morning I woke up thinking about the power of Jesus' resurrection. I know that Easter Sunday has passed, but the resurrection life that Jesus has given us is not limited to a single day.

As a matter of fact, Christ's resurrection from the dead was all about taking off limits and doing the impossible. The biblical Greek word for "resurrection" is "anastasis" which is comprised of two root words meaning "up" and "to cause to stand." The literal meaning is, "To cause to stand up."

Resurrection power is not only about rising from the dead at the end of life, it's about standing up and rising above whatever obstacles that face you today, or any day, of your present life.

Because of Jesus, you can stand, or stand again!
