The power you have in Christ
October 28, 2011
But if Christ is in you, although the body is dead because of sin, the Spirit is life because of righteousness. 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.
I read that several years ago, a man wrote to the Rolls Royce Company because he wanted to know the horsepower of his Rolls Royce automobile. But after many letters, nobody would answer him because it was their policy at that time not to reveal the horsepower in their cars.
So he finally got the guts to send a letter to the president of the company. And in it, he wrote, “I am an owner of one of your cars and I demand to know the horsepower of my Rolls Royce.”
The president responded and said, “Sir, I’m glad to give you the answer to your question. The horsepower of a Rolls Royce is sufficient.”
That’s a lot like the power of God, isn’t it? It’s incomprehensible, but sufficient! It’s unmeasured, but adequate and available to you.
What kind of power is it that you and I have in Christ? It is resurrection power! It’s the same power that raised Jesus from the dead. So don’t insult God by saying, “I’m too weak to serve you,” or, “I don’t have the power to live the Christian life.” You have God’s sufficient resurrection power in you and have more than you need to make your impact for Christ!
IN CHRIST, GOD GIVES YOU SUFFICIENT POWER TO DO ALL THINGS. SO ATTEMPT GREAT THINGS FOR GOD KNOWING THAT HE’S GIVEN YOU EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO MAKE AN IMPACT FOR HIM!
