The Apostle Paul tells us in Romans 8:11 that the same Spirit that powerfully raised Jesus from the dead lives in us, giving us life. We can’t love, serve and obey Jesus without this resurrection power. While our focus on Christ crucified is necessary, we must not lose sight of Christ alive and ruling, inadvertently missing out on the confidence that Jesus’ resurrection gives his people.
These 40 devotional studies from veteran teacher and preacher Michael Raiter will help you revel in the joy and hope that comes from the resurrection, seen in both Old and New Testaments, exemplified through Jesus, his prefigures and his followers.
