The Light Daily Devotional – The Resurrected Life
Focus: The Resurrected Life
WORD FOR TODAY
When a man has experienced the power of resurrection, there will undoubtedly be a significant difference between his old and new lives. The evidence of a resurrected life is revealed by new life in Christ!
“He is not here; for He is risen, as He said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.” Matthew 28:6 NKJV
The primary purpose of Christ’s death in men’s lives is to put an end to their sinful nature. When the work of the cross is effective in a man’s life, his life will take a new direction and fulfil God’s purpose. There will be a noticeable difference between his previous life and his new life. This is evident in the life of the Apostle Paul; from the time of his encounter with Jesus Christ, he was not found among those who persecuted God’s people.
The experience of Jesus Christ’s resurrection, as revealed by the fact that He was no longer where they had placed Him, speaks of what should happen to every man who has experienced the power of resurrection. It should also be said of you that you are no longer among those who engage in adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, wrathful outbursts, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, envy, murders, drunkenness, and revelries. When any of these continue to manifest in a man’s life, the missing link is the power of resurrection.
+ Have you experienced the power of resurrection?
Prayer: Lord! Help me to always yield myself to you and experience the power of resurrection in Jesus’ name. Amen!
Emphasis: The power of resurrection transforms a man from living according to sinful nature to living in the spirit!
Have a Wonderful Easter Monday!
