THEME: CHRIST OUR RESURRECTION
“For if we have been united with him in a death like his, we will certainly also be united with him in a resurrection like his. For we know that our old self was crucified with him so that the body ruled by sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves to sin— because anyone who has died has been set free from sin. Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him.”
-Christ having died for our sins on the cross and resurrected so that we may no longer be slaves to sin but victorious in Him. He knew no sin but became sin so that we may live. Christ destroyed the power of death with His own death, He died ones and for all for the sake of our salvation. Apostle Paul writes in Philippians 3:10-11; “I want to know Christyes, to know the power of his resurrection and participation in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, and so, somehow, attaining to the resurrection from the dead.” Like Paul, we Christians are called to desire to know Christ more knowing that we have been crucified with Him and it is no longer us who live but Christ who lives in us. It is prime then to put away our old selves which is corrupted by deceitful desires; but be made new in the attitude of our minds; and to put on our new selves, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness (Ephesians 4:22-24). Despite the challenges that we go through which sometimes occur like death in certain situations, we have hope of life through Christ’s resurrection. Ultimately, we know that we shall live even if we die since we have been united with Christ in a death and resurrection like His. Moreover, some of us will not die until Jesus Christ comes back, we then have His assurance of living with Him forever for we have obtained everlasting life through faith in Him.
Thank You Lord Jesus for You became a curse on a tree so that we may be free. The grave could not hold You captive but You overcame through Your resurrection from the dead so that we may walk in victory. Thank You Jesus; praise You Jesus. Your blood Jesus speaks better things than that of Abel. Your blood speaks of healing, freedom, power, deliverance, victory and salvation, we plead Your blood Jesus over our lives, families, marriages, relationships, businesses, properties, future, government, nation and all the nations of the world. We plead Your blood over the corona virus pandemic because You live and reign forever, deliver us Jesus. Lord You conquered death and You are seated at the right hand of God, thank You for making us more than conquerors. You have given us authority to trample on snakes and scorpions, and to overcome all the power of the enemy, nothing will hurt us because we belong to You. We rejoice because our names are written in the book of life in heaven, thank You for making us Yours Jesus. All the kingdoms of the world belong to You Jesus; for You reign forever. Reign in our hearts, minds, families, communities, nation and all the nations of the world, and make everything new Lord according to Your will. May the grace is our Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit, be with us now and forever more. Amen
