Here we are in the resurrection season to celebrate the death, burial, and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. This month, I want to give you some meditations so that you can make withdrawals from the finished work of Christ. Jesus Christ is the source and the Cross is the means whereby we have been redeemed. In life, we can make withdrawals from that finished work because that’s where our blessings come from.

Philippians 3:10, That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death;

In order to understand the power of the resurrection, you must understand that it was actually the Holy Spirit functioning in His divine power. You must also understand the crucifixion. What happened on that day? Well, He paid it all for us to be: redeemed, able to live a good & abundant life, and then testify of His goodness.

The revelation of what Jesus did on the Cross is applicable to you in your everyday affairs. It was by the Holy Ghost, who is the very life and nature of God, that Jesus rose from the dead. Because you were crucified and buried with Him you are capable of living the resurrection life now.

Begin to think about how you are redeemed from the curse of the law. That you are able to know Him and the power of His resurrection. The resurrection was the main event because when He rose, He defied hell and all demonical power. He also set the captives free. So I’m glad in this season we, as christians, can celebrate what Jesus did for us. If you are reading this but are not born again, I ask you to please accept Jesus Christ right now as your personal savior.

If you are dealing with any difficulties in your life or anything that’s trying to hinder you, just plead the blood and thank God that through the finished work of Christ you have been set free. This is a truth that you must know. You must know the truth of what happened at calvary and what the resurrection really means. It means that you are a child of God, have been set free, and you can live and be led by His Spirit!
