Power of 8: The Reality of the Resurrection, Part 2

The resurrection impacts our daily lives. The first impact is that the resurrection means we have eternal life. The resurrection is God’s pronouncement that Jesus is the Son of God. Because of this, we can be assured that He has power over death and that he can raise us to new life… eternal life. Once we have eternal life, then we will begin to experience freedom and change in our daily life. The next impact is assurance. Life is in Jesus Christ. If you have Jesus, you have eternal life. That is assurance. It’s not just a hope, but a steadfast assurance.

Power of 8: The Reality of the Resurrection, Part 1

The story of Jesus is the death, burial, resurrection and ascension. The resurrection of Christ Jesus is where we experience new life. In the book of Romans 1:3-4 Paul makes a point to mark the resurrection as God’s stamp of approval that what Jesus claimed about himself was true. But the resurrection is so much more than just an apologetic; it is the power of the Gospel.

Your Standing is Secure

When we’re trying to fight against the things of the world they will try to consume us.

What Does The Bible Say About Racism?

The term racism assumes that there are multiple races, and that one group thinks it is superior to another. The Bible speaks loud and clear to the topic of racism and gives clear instruction in how we are to treat one another. In God’s plan, there is only one race with multiple ethnicities. Within that framework, God shows no favoritism.

Power of 8: Law and Grace, part 2

Far from being a dull theological tenant, the way of grace is the most exciting way to live. As children of God, we’re no longer under the law. We live under the grace of God. No one is righteous under the law. Righteousness is a free gift of the grace of God. How then should we live? Led by the Spirit. The good news is God has sent his Spirit to take up residence in us. The Spirit renews our minds and empowers us to live as children of God. “For through the law I died to the law, so that I might live to God.” Galatians 2:19

Our new identity in Jesus Christ is so important for us to grasp. We have a post resurrection journey ahead of us fueled by Christ’s life.
