And just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glorious power of the Father, now we also may live new lives . . . we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. Romans 6:4; 8:37
I will be speaking again this Sunday at my home church -- Christ Community. Last week I brought a message entitled, Unleashing the Power of God. The message was based on portions of a letter that the apostle Paul wrote to a group of house churches in Rome. In short, he wanted those churches to know that the gospel is not just a message -- the gospel is the power of God unleashed! The power of God unleashed is the power of love . . . we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.
This week the title of the message is Unleashed to Live! Did you notice that Paul said we not only live new lives, but that the life we live displays the power of God. We possess the life of Christ. Just as he conquered death, we, too, are conquerors in life. We are unleashed to live an extraordinary adventure!
I can't wait for Sunday (but I must)!
