Exceeding Great Power

God has revealed His exceeding great power in us who believe in Christ. What is this great power?
Firstly, He grants us new life in Christ and sends us His Spirit to live new lives in Christ. Secondly, He promises to one day grant us imperishable bodies that never die. 
This is part of what we celebrate in this meal. Jesus died to procure our lives. He rose from the dead so that we would also be raised with Him. He has sent His Spirit so that His grace and peace would be manifested in us now and that we would believe that we will one day have eternal, imperishable bodies, like Him, knowing that, in Him, sin and death will be utterly, completely and eternally defeated. That is His exceeding great power in us who believe.
