“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 honor at God’s right hand in the heavenly realms. Now he is far above any ruler or authority or power or leader or anything else—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. And the church is his body; it is made full and complete by Christ, who fills all things everywhere with himself.”
Ephesians 1:19-23 NLT
The same power that raised Jesus from the dead is living inside the believer. Consider the awesome, supernatural presence of God that is actively working in our lives. As born again children of God, we are so much more than mortal humans. We are children of the King! We are royalty. God has made us His own possession. Have you caught my drift? As a child of God, through Christ Jesus, you are holy, righteous, and redeemed! Can you take that in? That is mind boggling, yet true for those who belong to Jesus Christ.
There is no power in all of creation like Jesus Christ. He created us, He has recreated us, and He reigns as Sovereign over all things. Praise His matchless, holy name. There is no other name worthy of honor, majesty, dominion, power, and praise!!! Can we, the body of Christ, the church, rise up in resounding anthem of praise?? He is King of kings! He is Lord of lords! He is all in all!!! He surpasses all!
“Jesus came and told his disciples, “I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth.”
Matthew 28:18 NLT
“There is salvation in no one else! God has given no other name under heaven by which we must be saved.””
Acts of the Apostles 4:12 NLT
“Therefore, God elevated him to the place of highest honor and gave him the name above all other names, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue declare that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”
Philippians 2:9-11 NLT
“Christ is the visible image of the invisible God. He existed before anything was created and is supreme over all creation, for through him God created everything in the heavenly realms and on earth. He made the things we can see and the things we can’t see— such as thrones, kingdoms, rulers, and authorities in the unseen world. Everything was created through him and for him. He existed before anything else, and he holds all creation together. Christ is also the head of the church, which is his body. He is the beginning, supreme over all who rise from the dead. So he is first in everything. For God in all his fullness was pleased to live in Christ, and through him God reconciled everything to himself. He made peace with everything in heaven and on earth by means of Christ’s blood on the cross.”
Colossians 1:15-20 NLT
Can I hear the church shout JESUS?!!!!!!!!!
