Power is an interesting concept. As diametrically opposed as submission appears to be to power, it is, in fact, the path to power.
As players on a sport team submit to the plans of their coach they become a powerful threat for their opponent. This, in turn, ignites the flame of accomplishment within the team. Submission is the key to a successful outcome.
The Son of God walked this earth with the full power of the universe available to Him…
Then Jesus came to them and said, “All power in heaven and on earth is given to me.” Matthew 28:18 NCV
Through Christ's submission to the cross this SAME POWER is made available to us. Fitting into His Father's plan brought about the power of the cross conquering death and offering us unobstructed access to our Heavenly Father. That submission calls for an Easter Hallelujah along with this renewed commitment...
I want to know Christ—yes, to know the power of his resurrection and participation in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death. Phillippians 3:10
If, however, we seek to gain power through work, friends, family or any earthly place other than through the power of the cross it will enslave us. Christ submitted himself to the cross so that His non-enslaving power could be birthed in us. By submission to Him this same resurrection power dwells in us.
