1 Corinthians 1:24

“But unto them which are called both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God.”

Did you know that everything in life requires power?  Whether it’s power in the sense of authority or power in the sense of force everything in life requires power to operate.

Did you know that for God to create the world He had to use power? And did you know that there is no other power above the power of God?  But do you realize that the same power that God used to create the world is living in you?

The power of God is a person and that person is Jesus Christ and He has a voice.  Hebrews 1:3 says “Who being the brightness of His glory, and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the word of His power, when he had by Himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high.”  Therefore, the power of God speaks.  All things are upheld by the word of His power or all things are upheld by Christ the power of God because He is the Word of God.

Why did God give us His power? He gave us His power so that we can reign in life.  “For if by one man’s offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.” Through Christ God has given us power in authority and in force to subdue and dominate on earth.  Christ being the power of God is above every other power and He never stops working.  1 John 4:4 “Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them; because greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world.”  Greater is the power of God working for you than the power of the enemy working against you.

Now for my final question, what are you doing with all this power? There are no limits.
