You Carry the Resurrection!

In John 11:25, Jesus said, “I am the resurrection and the
  Jesus used the very powerful statement
“I am,” which placed him in unity with the Father and showcased His identity
and His power.  The resurrection is a
line of demarcation that separates every belief system from the truth of Jesus
Christ and empowers that truth.
Colossians 1:18 says, “And he is the head
of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the
dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy.
  Jesus is the firstborn as a result of the resurrection.  If there is a firstborn, there must be a
second born.  Who is the second
born?  We are!  Jesus was the first to be raised into life
from death.  When we receive him, we
become the second born.  The second
portion of the verse shows us that, through the resurrection, Christ gained
supremacy in all things.
  Over all
things, He reigns supreme.  Since we have
Christ inside of us, the resurrection power and identity transfers to each of
us.  In each of us is supremacy over all
  Take a moment to reflect on
that.  We have the conquering power of
the one who conquered the grave inside of us.  
Colossians 3:3-4 says, “For you died, and
your life is now hidden with Christ in God.
When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will
appear with him in glory.
” When Christ died and was resurrected and we
received Him, a partnership was established whereby, where He goes, we go.  Where we go, He goes.  We died with Him, and our new Spirit was
resurrected with Him.
Wherever we go, we carry the resurrection.  In nature, mosquitos can carry malaria, and
infect people with that harmful illness, a form of death.  In the Kingdom, we are carriers of something
powerfully beneficial to others.  We are
carriers who can “infect” others with resurrection power, with life!
As you read this, I am in Uganda, carrying
the resurrection power with me and passing it on to many pastors and
leaders.  Keep this word in the forefront
of your mind as you move throughout your week. 
Remember that you are a carrier of the resurrection!
