The Power of the Resurrection

The Power of the Resurrection

As we continue in this season of resurrection, we’re reminded of the things that Jesus said – as well as those things that the enemy would say.

Things Jesus would never say:

  • Surrender to your fears and allow them to control you.
  • Surrender to your doubts and allow them to overwhelm you.
  • Surrender to your anxiety and allow it to paralyze you.
  • Be belligerent in your unbelief.
  • Don’t be teachable or honest in areas of unbelief.

Things Satan would say:

He will feed your fears.

  • You are alone.
  • You believed a lie.
  • You are unworthy of love.
  • You are beyond rescue.
  • You are defined by your past and what others have done to you.
  • You will never change.


  • He is a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. (1 Peter 5.8)
  • He is the father of lies. (John 8.43-44)

Things Jesus would say: 

  • I will never leave you. (Deuteronomy 31.6, Hebrews 13.5-6)
  • I do not condemn you. (Romans 8.1)
  • Bring your doubts! (Matthew 11.1-6)
  • I don’t give you a spirit of fear. (2 Timothy 1.7)
  • Nothing affects my love for you. (Romans 8.31-39)
  • Better days are coming! (Romans 10.13)

Questions & Takeaways:

  • Who are you yielding to?
    • There are people to serve.
    • There is power to possess.
    • The days are limited.

Yielded living includes:

  • Pursuit of Jesus (Mark 16.16 – “Believed”)
  • Pursuit of people (Mark 16.15 – “Go into all the world…”)
  • Pursuit of spiritual health (Mark 16.14 – “He reproached them”)
