Christians around the world will celebrate the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ this month. Perhaps, it’s a time for reflection and self-examination for all of us. Some of us tend to limit the present-day power and authority of the great, miracle-working Savior of New Testament times. Today we all believe that Jesus can forgive our sins and relieve our guilt. We also believe Jesus can provide us with peace and joy and give us eternal life. As pointed out recently by David Wilkerson, the pastor who established New York’s Time Square Church, Jesus does all of the above in the “unseen, invisible spiritual world.” He says that “Jesus is God of the natural world.”
Sometimes Christians either forget, or simply refuse to accept, that part of his awesome power and authority. We must remember that Jesus is Lord over our everyday affairs – Lord of our homes, Lord over our children, and Lord over our marriages and relationships. He is even Lord over our businesses, our work and our financial affairs. Consider what Paul wrote in Ephesians 1:18-19:
I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and his incomparably great power for us who believe.
Paul is telling us we need a revelation of Jesus’ power since the time Christ was raised from the dead. As I write this, Jesus sits at the right hand of God – with all power given to him in heaven and on earth. The simple truth is that Jesus Christ is all powerful and has complete authority over each of us and our lives on this earth. For those who truly believe this, the implications are indeed awesome. Hopefully, as we all celebrated Easter and the resurrection of our Lord and Savior, we realized fully that we can face the future with a greater assurance that Jesus’ power and authority are with us daily and readily available. That realization should be enough for all of us from this moment forward. May God bless each of you and your families in a very special way during this time!
