…That you may know… …what is the surpassing greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power which He worked in Christ, having raised Him from the dead, and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenlies…
Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly more than all the things which we ask or think, according to the power which is working in us…
Eph. 1:19-20, 3:20
The greatest expression of God’s power was in Him raising His Son from the dead. And we who are saved have also received this same operation of God’s power, when He raised us up from being dead in sin, to being alive in Christ Jesus His Son. The surpassing greatness of His power is the power of His resurrection Life working in us.
When you see God change a sinner into a saint, you see the greatest expression of the power of God. When we acknowledge that a brother or sister is gracious – that grace is working in them, and they are now who they are bcos of grace alone, then we are acknowledging the awesome power of God in operation.
If you’ve lived today by faith, trusting Jesus, and your life is different than what it used to be, you’re no longer controlled by sinful desires, then you are a walking, talking POWER HOUSE, for that’s the raw power of God working in you, the same power which raised Jesus from the dead.
Christian character, then, is the outcome of the power of God working in a person.
It strikes me that many of us do not acknowledge the power of God in one another and in ourselves. Many of us have been conditioned to think of God’s power as exclusively consisting of the miraculous, yet, that would be an open door to deception IF one did not know and acknowledge, first, the power of His grace working in them, from the day they were born again.
