MORE THAN ENOUGH POWER

And how very great is his power at work in us who believe. This power is the same as the mighty strength which he used when he raised Christ from death and seated him at his right side in the heavenly world. (Ephesians 1:19-20 | Good News Bible)

 

“Christ’s resurrection was more than a triumph over rigor mortis; it was a triumph over all the forces that held us in bondage!”  – Mark Hankins

 

Paul used four different words for power in an attempt to describe what great power was released in the resurrection of Christ:

dunamis = dynamite; ability

energia = energy; operative power in exercise

kratos = manifested strength

ischuos = an endowment of strength

Paul said this power, power, power, power that God used to raise Jesus from the dead is not just great but exceeding great. Paul said that this power is great beyond measure — surpassing power — more than enough power.

 

Confession: The same mighty power that raised Christ from the dead is at work in me! This power is overwhelmingly great, incomparably great, immeasurable and unlimited! “And what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working working of His mighty power.” (Ephesians 1:19)
