The Resurrection is Not Just a Doctrine.

We minimize the power of the resurrection when we reduce it to a Christian doctrine that is just part of our belief system. Doctrines are not something we should worship. They are not sources of the power we need to be the champions God has called us to be. The only true source of power we have is the one whom the doctrine is based upon… and this is only true if we are speaking of Jesus. Our doctrines and beliefs are in the only King of Kings and Lord of Lords there ever was, is or will be. His name is Jesus.

In John 11:25-26 (NKJV )“Jesus said to Martha, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live. {26} And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?”” This was a statement of divine identification. Christ did not say, “Trust in a doctrine about Me.” He identified Himself as the “the resurrection and the life.” This was an announcement of divine personal identity from the only One who not only has never lied, and according to the Scriptures, cannot lie. It is a statement that says, “Look to Me. Serve Me. Trust in My faithfulness. Trust in My ability to do whatever I will, because I am God.” I want to encourage you to maximize Christ as the Lord, Savior, Master and King in your life. In doing so, you will maximize His resurrection power. You will be walking in the truth and it will continue to keep you free to be all He calls you to be. I’m Dr. Bob. Reflect on what it means for you to be following the only Person who is completely dependable, fully powerful and forever faithful. Of course, I am talking about the Lord Jesus Christ.
