The Kitchen Table Devotions

“The Resurrection”

Day 16

For his sake I have suffered the loss of all things and count them as rubbish, in order that I may gain Christ 9 and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which comes through faith in Christ, the righteousness from God that depends on faith— 10 that I may know him and the power of his resurrection, and may share his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, 11 that by any means possible I may attain the resurrection from the dead.                  Philippians 3:8-11

For there to be a resurrection there must be a death.  We cannot know the power of the resurrection without knowing the experience of death to sin.  And so, we can’t be afraid of death or dying to sin, the flesh, and what’s temporary if we want to have His forgiveness, freedom, and forever.  We can’t hold on to this life and have hold of His life.  For there to be a resurrection, there must be a death.  Don’t be afraid of dying, be afraid of not living.
