“Indeed, I count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have suffered the loss of all things and count them as rubbish, in order that I may gain Christ and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which comes through faith in Christ, the righteousness from God that depends on faith— that I may know him and the power of his resurrection, and may share his sufferings, becoming like him in his death” (Philippians 3:8–10).
To really know Christ is to know the power of His resurrection working in us. What did Paul mean by this passionate statement? It is not enough to “know” about His person. There must be a living, daily, intimate walk with Him in the power of the Holy Spirit that causes us to live Christ’s life in us. That is why Paul said, “It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me” (Galatians 2:20). There can be no resurrection power without the crucifixion of self, first. God wants us to be His emissaries through the power of Christ in us, not just a doctrine in the church.
CHRIST IS RISEN SO WE CAN LIVE THROUGH HIS RESURRECTION POWER!
