For so many, the annual pilgrimage to church occurs on Easter Sunday, perhaps out of tradition or feelings of guilt if they do not attend.
But what do the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ mean to you? What is the significance of the power of God to raise His Son from the dead, and is it relevant in your life today?
Let’s visit what the sacrifice and resurrection of Jesus meant to Paul in Philippians 3:10-11, “That I may know Him, and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death; in order that I may attain to the resurrection from the dead.”
Paul diligently sought to know Jesus—not intellectually, but experientially and intimately in his daily walk. He hungered for and pursued God for a flow of the Holy Spirit that the life of Jesus would be seen in him and witnessed by others. All his passion was due to the identification, ownership, and commitment he had to Jesus who had surrendered His life for him.
How about you? Are you experiencing and encountering the resurrection power of Jesus Christ in your life today? Remember—He arose that you may live!
