Sharing from Fredrik Wisloff. (n.d.). Rest a while.

That I may know him and the power of his resurrection, and may share his sufferings, becoming like him in his death.  (Phil 3:10).

We yearn for more of the power of His resurrection. The open grave of Christ testifies of life and victory. And this victorious power is one in which all believers may share. God does not want us to lead a life of impotence and defeat. By drawing from the power of His resurrection we are enabled to lead a life of victory and of holiness.

And this same power is to be granted to the Church of Christ and become the means of spiritual awakening and renewal, so that God's children may rejoice together over the salvation which Christ has wrought.

There is, however, one condition for experiencing this power of His resurrection: we must first be willing to share His sufferings. And this is neither easy nor pleasant, for it means surrendering our own ego to be crucified. We must become like Him in His death, we read. We must give up our own self-seeking, bear Christ's shame, confess His name before men, be willing to suffer and to sacrifice and to enter a life of unceasing prayer for the unsaved world.

He who is not willing to share His sufferings will not know the power of His resurrection either.

Blessings,

Pastor Paul
