Plugged into Power
Updated: Oct 24
If your life is filled with fear and doubt, there’s a simple solution: You need to connect to the resurrected Christ. Plug into the power! Luke 24:44-49 – “And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me. 45 Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures, 46 And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day: 47 And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. 48 And ye are witnesses of these things. 49 And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high.”
The first thing Jesus did in this passage was to reconnect the disciples to the Scriptures. We won’t be connected to His resurrection power without being connected to His Word. We must refuel ourselves daily in the Word of God! The Bible is our “fueling station”.
We must also be connected to the mission. The Lord Jesus Christ made the mission clear to His disciples in Verse 48: they were to function as witnesses. Our mission is the same!
Often referred to as the ‘Great Commission’, Jesus tells his disciples in Matthew 28:19-20 – “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: 20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.”
Look past ‘church’ and ‘religion’ … and see GOD! Our mission is to all nations, beginning where we are. In order to witness, we must first be endued with the Holy Spirit through spiritual birth. Believing in God is only a step. We can’t live the mission until we receive His Holy Spirit … which gives us access to the power of God’s Spirit … and we are ‘plugged-in’ to His resurrection power!
Are you ‘plugged in’ to the resurrected Christ? If not, today is the day! Whether you have been saved for years or minutes, there is power in the blood!
Are you living the ‘great commission’? Challenge yourself to share your testimony with at least one person this week.
