The Power Of Christian Belief Comes Through Jesus’ Resurrection.
Christian belief gives us the power to withstand the sin and death that is in this world. The power of belief is not based on anything that we have done. It is what we know. It is that we know Jesus Christ defeated death when He resurrected from the dead and lives forever. Philippians 3:10 tells us the power of Jesus’ resurrection.
Philippians 3:10, “That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death;”
Christian Belief Is Based On the Power Of God.
If we rely only on our own wisdom we have no power over sin and death in this world. We must put our faith in the power of God only. He is the only one that can provide for us and offer eternal life. 1st Corinthians 2:5 tells us that Christian belief is based on the power of God.
1st Corinthians 2:5, “That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.”
Our Salvation Comes Through Our Christian Belief.
Our ultimate salvation of eternal life can only come through the power of God. Our Christian belief must be totally based on the power of God in order to receive eternal life. If we rely on the things that we sense with our five senses, we are lost. 1st Peter 1:5 tells us that the power of God and our faith keeps us ready for salvation.
1st Peter 1:5, “Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.”
The Power Of Belief Transcends The Power Of Darkness.
God’s power transcends everything to include the power of darkness. The problem is that if we do not believe in God and His mighty power, we cannot partake in His fellowship or His power over sin and death. It is the power of our belief that transports us from a relationship with sin and death to a relationship with God. Ephesians 1:19 tells us of the greatness of God’s power.
Ephesians 1:19, “And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power.”
