Back to Life

During this month, we will be focusing on the resurrection power of Jesus and the impact that has on us and the way we live as new creations in Christ.

1 Peter 1:3

According to His great mercy, He has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.”

 

Romans 6:4

…just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life.”

 

Ephesians 1:19-22 (NLTSE)

I also pray that you will understand the incredible greatness of God’s power for us who believe him. This is the same mighty power that raised Christ from the dead and seated him in the place of honour at God’s right hand in the heavenly realms. Now he is far above any ruler or authority or power or leader or anything elseā€“not only in this world but also in the world to come. God has put all things under the authority of Christ and has made him head over all things for the benefit of the church.

 

Romans 8:11 (NKJV)

But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.

 

Philippians 3:8-11 (NKJV)

Yet indeed I also count all things loss for the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as rubbish, that I may gain Christ and be found in Him, not having my own righteousness, which is from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which is from God by faith; that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death, if, by any means, I may attain to the resurrection from the dead.
