Resurrection power is the reason

What is the source of the new birth of the soul of a man?  The resurrection of Jesus Christ.  Ephesians 1:19-20, “and what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power, 20 which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places,”

The power that raised Christ from the dead, the power of God, is what brings our souls to life from the dead.  Ephesians 3:7-8, “ whereof I was made a minister, according to the gift of the grace of God given unto me by the effectual working of his power. Unto me, who am less than the least of all saints, is this grace given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ;”

God’s power demonstrated to us by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead is what we rely on to raise our souls from the dead, to work in us to bring us into righteous living and ultimately takes us to meet God in glory.

Thus we have a living hope for all of this to happen in the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead (1 Peter 1:3).

Thus our ultimate hope is in the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead! Call upon His name and live!
