He’s Alive in Us

Early in the morning on the first day of the week, while it was still dark, Miriam from Magdala comes to the tomb.  She sees that the stone has been rolled away from the tomb.  (John 20:1) Tree of Life Version

I love to sing Don Francisco’s, “He’s Alive”!  The song begins with Mary/Miriam returning to tell them that the stone was rolled away and His body was gone!  Peter and John ran to the tomb; John believed a miracle had happened but Peter was skeptical.

We celebrated the Resurrection of Jesus Christ/Yeshua HaMashiach, and we believe alongside John that a miracle happened!  However, there are still many in our world that are still skeptical.  It is our job to tell them, to give our witness that He’s Alive in us!

We believe that the Lord is in us; in fact, the power that raised Him from the dead is in us!  That power is there not just so we can live a good life; it is there so we can make disciples!  That power enables us to heal the sick, to speak a prophetic word, to cast out demons, to speak in new languages, to drink anything deadly with no harm to us and even to raise the dead! (See Mark 16:17-18)

He wants us to trust Him completely!  If He tells us to witness, then we need to witness!  If he tells us to heal someone, then we need to heal them!  If He speaks a prophetic word to us, then we need to prophesy!  If someone says to us that they aren’t sure if the Bible is true, then we need to share the truth with them in love!  He lives in us and wants to live through us!  It is not about what I can do for him – it is about what He can do through us!

Allow this verse to speak to you about how He wants to use you!  Galatians 2:19b-20 (Tree of Life Version)  I have been crucified with Messiah; and it is no longer I who live, but Messiah lives in me.  And the life I now live in the body, I live by trusting in Ben-Elohim (Son of God), who loved me and gave Himself up for me.
