The Resurrection Power

The Resurrection Power

Scripture: Romans 8:11

 “But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.”


In the verse before this one, Paul wrote that Christians are alive spiritually because the Holy Spirit dwells within them, but that our physical bodies are dying and will die because of sin. (Romans 5:12).

Hallelujah! You just cannot imagine the privilege we have in Christ Jesus. Paul, however, gives his Christian readers the assurance that their physical bodies will be resurrected, just like Christ’s body was. (1 Thessalonians 4:16). To be more specific, he says that “if,” which in this context means “since,” God’s Spirit is in you, then the same Spirit that raised Christ from the dead will also give life to our mortal bodies. This is because Christ was raised from the dead by the same Spirit that will give life to our bodies. (1 John 3:2).

Paul makes it abundantly clear that the resurrection is an accomplishment of the Holy Spirit of God. One of the many things that He does is that. It was He who resurrected Jesus from the dead, and when the time is right, He will do the same for all those who are in Christ. This is a continuation of the main idea presented in this portion of scripture, which is that those who are saved in Christ are completely and utterly free from any possibility of being condemned.

Yesterday, I shared on the title- “relationship to the cross.” It is amazing to see how the devil take hold on our past sins and the GNT calls them “Unfavorable records” as the devil is good at accusing Christians of their past life to prevent them from receiving God’s blessings. As a matter of fact, today’s word assures us of the Holy Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead dwells in our mortal bodies and would quicken it and since we are saved in Christ by that same Spirit, we are completely and utterly free from any possibility of being condemned or accused.

Therefore, whenever, the devil accuses you henceforth, tell him boldly that the last time you checked, all your sins where simply nailed to the cross and there was great significant of “The Resurrection Power” and that is why we are all celebrating today and would celebrate always.


I degree and declare that whatever dead situation in your life (career, marriage, job, family, finances….name it) is totally broken and risen now, in Jesus mighty name, Amen.
