"Explaining and demonstrating that the Christ had to suffer and rise again from the dead, and saying, This Jesus whom I preach to you is the Christ." Acts 17:3
IN JESUS TODAY!
This is the Christian way of life, when we are knocked down we rise again! Jesus came before us to demonstrate this, that we will live, we will rise from the dead to be with our Lord in heaven for eternity, nothing or no one in the world can keep us down, no one can hold us back, we are the only ones that can allow ourselves to be defeated! Rise above it when things get you down, rise above it when people are determined to hold you back, right here, this is the training ground where we can see what and who we are made of! As Christians we are made of Christ, and greater is he that is in us than he that is in this world! We read this, "To them God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of his mystery among the gentiles: which is Christ in you, the hope of glory."." Colossians 1:27 Ok, did you catch that? The mystery is... Christ in you, the hope of glory!! This Christ in you is the same Christ Jesus that rose from the grave and ascended on high! This power of resurrection is the same power that we have in us to overcome our troubles, our addictions, our hurts and because of Jesus who is in us, we will rise above!
This Christ in us, even Jesus our glorious Father, will cause us to overcome, to conquer, and to rise again from the dead to be with him in glory! Hallelujah! Praise Jesus for victory! Rise above it today my friend and don't let these little matters weigh you down!
