He isn’t here! He is risen from the dead, just as he said would happen. Come, see where his body was lying.Matthew 28:6

Read Matthew 28:1-10.
Have you seen those battery adverts where dead electronic items are brought back to life? The message is: all you need is the power from our batteries and life will be good again.
When it comes to our lives, there are two types of power: the power of bad and the power of good. Satan has the power to control your life. He can control your mind, your emotions and you can allow him to control where you life goes.
We are powerless against Satan without Christ. On the cross, Jesus said, “It is finished” (John 19:30). At that moment, Satan was defeated. No longer can he control you. No longer can he manipulate you. No longer can he condemn you.
Jesus destroyed Satan. And the power that brought him back to life is available to you and me today, to resist Satan in the future. Jesus can breathe new life into our spiritually dead selves and then give us the power to live for him. Satan can’t harm you. Jesus will protect you. You have the power to say no.
With Jesus, you can power on today!
Then let us make our boastCharles Wesley (1707-1788)
Of his redeeming power,
Which saves us to the uttermost,
Till we shall sin no more.
Let us take up the cross
Till we the crown obtain,
And gladly reckon all things loss
So we may Jesus gain.
