The Easter Effect
God’s plan was for Messiah to die for our sins, be raised from the dead. (verses 31-32) and so God provided a way for us to be forgiven of our sins, and live in connection to Him thru the indwelling Spirit.
Even during this pandemic, we can still live in peaceful, purposeful connection with the risen Jesus Christ every day.
Verse 34 David speaks of the Messiah “The LORD (YHWH) said to my Lord (awdone = lord, master, sovereign) …”
1. I live in connection with Jesus Christ because His Spirit lives in me bringing me forgiveness of my sins. (verse 38)
Verses 25-28 = Psalm 16:8-11 Messiah is speaking of His death & resurrection.
Acts 4:12 What about you – have you received Christ by His indwelling Spirit??
2. I am at peace because the indwelling Spirit of Christ brings His life and His peace to me. John 14:15-20; 25-27
3. I live with purpose because the indwelling Spirit of Christ gives me purpose – to glorify Jesus Christ and represent Him.
II Corinthians 5:20
