R E N E W E D   P O W E R
John 5:21

How do we find power and renewed life for our bodies and emotions after the long months of a season?  What can give us renewed vigor and an injection of energy?  Jesus knows where this stuff comes from and He tells us today.

At John chapter 5 and verse 21 we hear His words, “For as the Father raises the dead and gives life to them, even so the Son gives life to whom He will.” 

While none of us are dead, technically, I’m sure some of us feel less than 100%.  Who wouldn’t like to have our legs restored to the way they were in pre-season?  We could all use some resurrection of our energies for this championship game.

Here’s the good news, Jesus says here that just like His Father in heaven can raise the dead, so can He.  Let’s trust Him to breathe life back into our tired lungs, to re-ignite the fire in our souls, to strengthen our formerly lifeless legs.  If He can raise the dead, surely He can empower us to play this game with power, enthusiasm and passion.  Let’s go after this championship like we’ve just been raised from the dead.  We’ll show the crowd a life like they’ve never seen before!
