VICTORIA OSTEEN SERMON LIVE THE RESURRECTION : Pastor Victoria Osteen teaches us on living the resurrection: Can I tell you today, there’s a man who has already paid your bill? he’s already canceled your debt, it is paid in full, and his name is Jesus Christ. See, we’ve been talking about it all day. It’s the Easter message: “it is finished, it is done.” he has already created you in his righteousness when you are found in him, he has given you the power of the resurrection.
Joel quoted it earlier, “the same power that raised him from the dead is alive in you.” you see, you’ve got resurrection power God has given you mercy and grace so that you can go in this resurrected life, you are free to go, how do we live this resurrected life?
We don’t want to just talk about it, we don’t want to just come in here on Easter and say, “yes, Jesus is alive” we want to live the life that he died to give us; we want everything that Jesus died to give us. Can you imagine if you did something for someone, you laboured for someone, you gave it your all, and they weren’t interested? you see, Jesus gave it his all because he wanted me and you, he wanted us to be interested he wanted us to walk in power, so we have to take hold of everything that he took hold for us.
The apostle Paul said in Philippians, “I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold for me.” he said, “I have to press.” you see, sometimes it’s hard to take hold of the things that are right there in front of you because there are some things that are trying to distract you, there are some things that are trying to act more powerful than what is right there in front of you.
Have you ever known what to do but you didn’t do it? You just didn’t do it, aren’t you glad you’re forgiven? Aren’t you glad that Jesus gives us second chances? There’s a pressing, there’s a fight of good fight of faith that’s involved.
Paul said, “I’m not looking back.” he says, “I’m pressing forward.” you know, Paul killed Christians before he gave his heart to Christ, before he had that Damascus moment when he was blinded and shown the resurrection of Jesus.
Can you imagine the guilt that he had to face when he was coming to these Christian believers and trying to speak the gospel to them? can you imagine what that felt like? Have you ever heard, like, in your mind, like, something that’s saying “you can’t tell somebody about this, because you’ve made mistakes”? “You can’t share the gospel, you’re not good enough.”
Pastor Victoria Osteen teaches us that our lord Jesus has paid the price for our sins and we do not have to be weighed down by our sins and our guilt’s, we have been liberated.
