Since today is Easter Sunday, which commemorates the Lord Jesus’ resurrection that occurred three days after He was crucified upon the Cross, it’s good to meditate on the power that raised him from the dead. Scripture says we’re brought from death to life by the resurrection power of God. For us Christians, it is not just a mere celebration, but it is a real victory.
“Jesus said to her, ‘I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live. And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?’ “ (John 11:25-26)
An amazing song that reminds us of all our Lord has done for us is ‘Resurrection Power’ by American Contemporary Christian Music artist Chris Tomlin. Originally written by Ryan Ellis. Chris released his verison in January, 2018, and it made it into the Hot Christian Songs chart. It’s one of Chris Tomlin’s and he shares its significance.
The Meaning of Resurrection Power
In an interview with Billboard, Chris said: “‘Resurrection Power’ is that same power that raised Jesus from the dead, that we have that authority. I don’t know about you, but when my feet hit the floor in the morning, I don’t have that energy, you have to claim it. It’s pretty simplistic, we’re God’s sons and daughters, and we have that ability, letting God lead us and take that heavy weight off of our shoulders.
“He gives us the know-how to take authority of ourselves, breaking addictions and leaving whatever darkness that we’re living in behind. This song is what it’s all about, because if we don’t believe in the resurrection of Jesus then we don’t have anything”
“And if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of His Spirit who lives in you.” (Romans 8:11)
