That I may know Him and the power of His resurrection [Philippians 3:10]. Jesus’ resurrection most graphically demonstrates the extent of His power. That’s the kind of power the apostle Paul wanted to experience because he realized he was helpless to overcome sin on his own. The resurrection power of Jesus Christ deals with sin at our salvation, but it doesn’t stop there. Scripture says, “we were buried with Christ in His death, and we rose with Him to walk in newness of life” [Romans 6:4]. May I say, to defeat sin daily, we need His resurrection power to be our resource. We need His strength to serve Him faithfully, to conquer temptation, to overcome trials, and to witness boldly. Only as we abide in Him and allow the Holy Spirit to live the life of Christ in and through us, will we be able to have victory over sin in this life. You think about that.
