How to Experience the Resurrection

We do not have to wait until we die and transition into eternity before experiencing the resurrection of Jesus Christ. We can live a resurrected life of power and freedom right here and now on earth. In Phillipians 3:10, Paul desired to know Christ in the power of His resurrection. Let that be your desire today. It was available then and is divinely accessible now through the Holy Spirit. God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit is the same yesterday, today and forever. The following poem helps to identify when you are living a resurrected life.

A Resurrected Life


You can experience the resurrection,
God deemed it so before time had begun.

For God so loved the world
That He gave His only begotten Son.

You can experience the resurrection
When you open your heart
to Jesus Christ.

You can go through and overcome
The stress, the struggles
and the strife.

You can experience the resurrection
When your past indiscretions
no longer hurt.

And you don't care
if the truth comes out
When so-called friends
try to dish old dirt.

You can experience the resurrection
When you have joy instead of pain,

When you praise God in the midst of battle
Before the victory has been obtained.

You can experience the resurrection
Growing in the power of Jesus Christ.

You can experience the resurrection
Because He got up after laying down His life!


(Philippians 3:10) "That I may know Him and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death."


Be blessed,

Jo Anne Meekins

Inspired, this sounds almost like spoken poetry...at least, I can almost hear it being read. It has that kind of cadence. I liked it! I liked the artwork too.

Thanks Molly! I have spoken it at a couple of church occasions. :-)I googled and found the picture. It seemed to represent the sentiment of new possibilities, hope, modern day resurrection.
