by Rev. Sunday Bwanhot | Our problem is that we tend to forget our position in and with Christ and we live as earthly souls still bound in chains by the evil one. Let’s claim our position, live free and live in victory.
The resurrection of Christ is the event that sealed as truth every claim and promise Jesus made while here on earth. Those who deny his death and/or resurrection as something cooked up by Christians are not sincere. Secular historical books recorded these events and the sudden boldness of the disciples to witness about the resurrection was not borne out of inner courage. What happened on the cross on Friday and in the tomb on Sunday are events that you and I were not mere spectators, we participated fully. We died on Friday and did away with the body of sin. We were raised up on Sunday to a new life in Christ: “And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus.” Eph. 2:6-7.
Sin no longer has dominion over us for we are free and not slaves anymore. We are indeed seated with Christ in the heavenly places and here is what we are commanded to do: “Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God.” Col. 3:1. Our problem is that we tend to forget our position in and with Christ and we live as earthly souls still bound in chains by the evil one. Let’s claim our position, live free and live in victory. Amen!
