The transformation that occurred in the disciples canNOT be explained without the resurrection. These men were cowering in fear of the Jews, one of them fled the scene when Jesus was arrested nearly naked, and forgetting the promises Jesus had made when He was among them. So where did the sudden boldness, courage, wisdom, and POWER, come from? And, it wasn't just one of them, it was ALL of them. The resurrection had and has transforming power! Christianity would not exist without it. He is risen, friends.
Colossians 3:16 says: "Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs of the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts."
So let us allow this message and truth of the resurrection to DWELL among us; to be with us all day and all night. We have been made spotless because of the cross and the power of the resurrection lives in us. Im learning how not to "theologize" everything where I take notes and read it but don't allow it to IMPACT and TRANSFORM me. What about you?
