Ephesians 1:19-20 Third Meditation

I pray that you will continually experience the immeasurable greatness of God’s power made available to you through faith. Then your lives will be an advertisement of this immense power as it works through you! This is the mighty power that was released when God raised Christ from the dead and exalted him to the place of highest honor and supreme authority in the heavenly realm!” Ephesians 1:19-20

An electric lamp may be pretty
And find its place in your home
But without a source of electricity
It cannot the darkness overcome
Powerless to give light to anyone

Jesus showed what a human could do
Who was also a true son of God
When filled with God‘s power to overcome
The darkness of this earthly world
And bring in God‘s kingdom’s reign

When Jesus met people bound in sin
Judged by others as sinful and failing
He released God‘s forgiveness to them
Empowering them to live in His freedom
To live as God’s children again

When the demon possessed came to Jesus
Tormented, sick, and bound in fear
With a word of command Jesus set them free
To live as they were meant to be
To live as children of God

When outcasts came seeking Jesus
They found love, acceptance and forgiveness
His love healed their hearts and minds
So they could see their salvation was real
And live as children of God

When the sick came to Jesus for healing
And God‘s power to heal receiving
They were healed by His touch or word
Restored to full health and wholeness
To live as children of God

When the relatives of those recently dead
Came to Jesus to have their dead ones restored
He used his power to return them to life
Making them healthy once again
To live as children of God

When the judgment of guilty belonging to us
Was placed upon Jesus instead
He used his power to forgive all those
Who were silent or shouted, “crucify!”
So he could take our judgment to death on the cross

When all of our sins fell on Jesus
Separating Him from God just like us
He used his power to stay the course
To die our death, to take our curse
For the joy of making us sons of God

When Jesus died, went to the grave
And his body was entombed in a cave
God gave him power to overcome
And rise from death to eternal life
And be crowned as God’s true Son

All this power to overcome
God gives to us when we live in His Son
With Jesus in us and us in Christ
And the power of his resurrection life
We can live as full Sons of God

So be the light of God‘s glory
Living Jesus in this world
Receiving His resurrection power
To heal, deliver and overcome
And live as God’s kingdom Son
