It was the Apostle Paul’s great desire, stated very simply in Philippians 3:10.  “That I may know Him, and the power of His resurrection.”  The power of His resurrection.  I’ve been thinking about that phrase the last day or so as we approach this Easter Sunday.  And you know, when you really drill down, that statement is powerful itself.  You see, the power of the resurrection reminds us of the power of who Christ is – Romans 1:4 says He has been “declared the Son of God with power…by the resurrection from the dead.”  It assures us of the power of Biblical truth – 1 Corinthians 15:4 tells us that “He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures.”  It speaks of the power of the gospel that Romans 1:16 says “is the power of God unto salvation.”  It confirms the power of God’s divine pardon in Romans 4:25 that teaches Christ “was raised again for our justification.”  It extends to us the power of eternal hope through the words of the Savior Himself in John 11:25-26, ” I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in Me, though he were dead, yet shall he live.  And whosoever liveth and believeth in Me shall never die.”  And honestly, I believe that barely scratches the surface of the understanding of “the power of His resurrection.”  Paul wanted to know, to experience that power.  To be changed by it.  To live it.  To proclaim it.  That was Paul’s desire, but is it mine?  I’m challenged this Easter to make it so.  How about you?
