How has what you’ve done this week changed because of Jesus’ resurrection power living in you?

Following Christ’s Life Example

God calls us to love him with all of our hearts. The Easter story equips us to follow Christ’s life example.
It is resurrection power that enables us to crucify our false selves and to embrace love, patience, long-suffering and humility. It is resurrection power that enables us to be kind and compassionate to those around us, to forgive those who hurt us. It is resurrection power that gives us the ability to compromise with others and not insist on our own way.

Relying on Resurrection Power

Resurrection power is the only power that reproduces the character of Jesus in you. We can all testify – me included – that willpower on its own just doesn’t cut it. Resurrection power – dynamis – is what’s needed:
For God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases him. (Philippians 2:13 NLT)
Is that the resurrection change you see in your life or do you need to trust the Holy Spirit to give you the power, love, faith and wisdom you need to work in your life?
