Breakthrough: Resurrection Power: 2 Kings 13:20-21

About This Message

 

Then Elisha died and was buried. Now Moabite raiders used to come into the land in the spring of the year. Once, as the Israelites were burying a man, suddenly they saw a raiding party, so they threw the man into Elisha’s tomb. When he touched Elisha’s bones, the man revived and stood up!
2 Kings 13:20-21 (CSB)

But Jesus cried out again with a loud voice and gave up his spirit. Suddenly, the curtain of the sanctuary was torn in two from top to bottom, the earth quaked, and the rocks were split. The tombs were also opened and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised. And they came out of the tombs after his resurrection, entered the holy city, and appeared to many.           
Matthew 27:50-53 (CSB)

How does the resurrection power of Jesus work in me?

A)      Total Dependence On The Lord

“My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.” So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me.                              
2 Corinthians 12:9 (NLT)

B)        Fervent Love For Others

We know that we have passed from death to life because we love our brothers. The one who does not love remains in death.
1 John 3:14 (CSB)

C)        Consistent Power Over My Past

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has passed away, and see, the new has come!
2 Corinthians 5:17 (CSB)
