Remove The Wrapping

Remove The Wrapping…

The Bible tells us that we are to live in the power of the resurrection. What is the power of the resurrection?

When Jesus was placed in the tomb, he was buried with funeral wrappings and pounds of spices. On the day of the resurrection, the first thing Jesus did was remove all the funeral wrappings from his body.

So the power of the resurrection includes the power to take off your funeral wrappings. Funeral wrappings are what you carry over from your old life; things that bound you from the past, old habits, old baggage. In the resurrection, you have the power to remove those vestiges of the old life, the old you. Funeral wrappings are unclean things.

So now you have the power to remove any unclean, unholy thing that still remains in your life. Funeral wrappings are things which bind you. Thus, you have the power to break the bonds of anything, any bondage that still binds you or hinders you.

So start unwrapping those unholy things from your life. For in the new birth, there’s no room for funeral wrappings.

We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life. Romans 6:4

What’s still in your life from the past, that God doesn’t want you to be bound by? Take off those funeral wrappings and walk in the power of resurrection.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
