Easter Every Day: Living in the Power of the Holy Spirit
An item in Ripley's Believe It or Not pictures a plain bar of iron worth $5. The same iron made into horseshoes is worth $50. Made into needles, it is worth $5,000. Made into balance springs for fine Swiss watches, it is worth $500,000.
The value of our lives is not in our native abilities or earthly possessions, but in the way the Holy Spirit molds and uses us for eternal good. If you're a Christian, you have the Spirit. Here's the question: Does the Spirit have you?
The same power that raised Jesus from the dead now lives in you. The same Spirit who threw aside death's door and called the crucified Carpenter to life dwells in you right now. How can you experience his victory over your greatest challenges today?
I have written Easter Every Day to give you biblical, practical steps to the abundant life of Christ. We are meant to be "more than conquerors through him who loved us" (Romans 8:37). When we live in the power of the Spirit, every day is Easter.
