By Holy Power Our Sin Was Crushed

Featuring Dennis Jernigan Posted on April 8, 2010

A few years ago a friend of mine died. When I got the word, I rushed to the ER and was allowed to be with his body along with two other friends. Together we asked the Lord to raise our friend up…and I was preparing myself for the shock of seeing him rise up from that bed. But he did not rise. I believe God had a higher purpose for my friend’s death…because I really do believe God can still raise the dead! To raise one from the dead requires a kind of power that exceeds my human abilities. Only One has such power. His name is Jesus. When Jesus rose from the dead sin was left buried there…literally crushed under the sheer magnitude of resurrection power. It is that same power that the Lord infuses my life with that pours out grace to overcome any temptation or get through any difficult circumstance. The power that created the universe is available to me any given moment on any given day. It is mine for the asking.

As you approach this day, be ready to appropriate and utilize the power of resurrection in your own life.
…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… Philippians 3:10-11 NASB
