Glory to God!
He is risen! Yesterday we celebrated the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ and His victory over sin and death. Three of us testified about what Easter means to us personally and this is what was shared:
Speaking of honouring and living in what Christ has accomplished for us, Tabea Rowe shared how the believer is empowered to live in resurrection power by applying God's Word to one's life on a daily basis and renewing one's mind to overcome the deception and work of the enemy (Rom. 12:1,2). Having been raised to new life in Christ, the believer is now able to apply Christ's victory over sin and death in his or her life to overcome difficult circumstances, sickness, depression and everything else the enemy throws at us. We praise God for empowering us to overome! Hallelujah!
Hannah Schulze spoke to us about the wonderful truth that through Christ's victory, man can now enter in to the very presence of God and live in communion with the Father through faith in Jesus. Through Christ's death and resurrection, we now have access to the Most Holy Place and can experience the presence of the living God every moment of our lives (Heb. 10:19-22). As the temple of the Holy Spirit, the believer is to learn to host the very presence of God in his life on a daily basis. We praise God for giving us entrance into His presence so that we can enjoy intimacy with Him!
Christ's resurrection was a sign to the world that there is indeed a resurrection of the dead and that just as Jesus predicted His suffering, His burial and His resurrection, He also predicted that He would come again to judge mankind (Luke 17:23-25; 21:33-36; 24:1-12). Christ's resurrection points to the hope of glory every believer has (Col.1:27) as he waits in expectation for Christ's glorious return.
Easter means the believer can live in resurrection power as he enters and lives in God's presence, is empowered by God and lives in expectation of Christ's return.
