About The Power of Obedience Series

Obedience is not just a reflexive performance of God’s will. It is richer than we know, and its power is known by too few. Would you be one of them?

Devotional

Jesus obeyed, all the way to and through a hideous death. Lying there dead as anyone who ever died, God raised Him up into an amazing Life, a new kind of existence, never before seen on earth or in heaven.

Jesus lives! He lives NOW in a heavenly Life, a transcendent Life. These things I know as facts. But do I know that I too am resurrected? Do I see that I also am ascended? Saved? Recreated?

I am NOW in Christ, seated with Him where He is… These are all facts, unable to be proved but undeniable.

I celebrate His resurrection, yes. But I also celebrate that God raised me from a walking death, a futile devastation, and gave me the kind of Life that is Christ Himself. I glory in our resurrection IN Christ! Our ascension! Our salvation! Too wonderful to imagine but FACTS nevertheless.

His obedience secured it. Oh, I owe Him all…

(Read Ephesians 2:1-10.)

Romans 8:11 NASB
But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.
