Jesus Christ Power
Page 77

Submission Faith Trust

Christ in GloryJesus Christ power was shown in that he died under his own control and authority and had the ability to take up his life again. Jesus explained this in John 10.17-18 "The reason my Father loves me is that I lay down my life — only to take it up again. No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of my own accord. I have authority to lay it down and authority to take it up again. This command I received from my Father." Again Saint Paul commented in Ephesians 1.19b-20, "That power is the same as the mighty strength he exerted when he raised Christ from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms."

Holy Spirit

Christ on the CrossJohn the Baptist became "strong in the Spirit" and the power of God filled him. Christ washed us with the Holy Ghost. The Spirit brought power to Christ's life. Christ was an offering to God. The Holy One brought obedience, submission, faith, trust, zeal and life. This is all that is necessary for the work of a Christian. In death, Christ was protected by the Holy Spirit of God but it was Jesus Christ's power that enabled him to come through resurrection into ascended glory.
