Chris Tomlin – Official Music Video for “Resurrection Power.”
This song is created for Easter. The lyrics, “Now I have resurrection power. Living on the inside. Now, I’m no longer bound by sin and darkness. Living in the light of Your goodness. You have given us freedom,” make us feel the power and faith brought by the’ resurrection, as well as our longing for true freedom. True freedom comes from God. Only by accepting God’s work and salvation can we gain true freedom and liberation.
Thinking back to the Age of Law, people were increasingly unable to keep the laws, and bound by sin to the point that they would be legally convicted or condemned to death at any time. For the sake of redeeming mankind, God personally became flesh to take on the sins of all mankind, so that people were no longer subject to condemnation according to His law. From then on, as long as people prayed and repented before God, they would be forgiven their sins and live among His grace. However, our sinful nature has yet to be resolved, and we cannot break away from the control of sin, living under the situation of sinning and repenting. For example, our natures are full of arrogance and conceit, selfishness and deceit. When getting along with others, we fight and have jealous disputes with each other for reputation. It is obvious that we haven’t gained true freedom and liberation. God sympathizes with people’s weaknesses and knows their needs best. Only by being saved completely from sin, can people get rid of the control of sin through and through, and break free of the influence of Satan, living freely before God. It is recorded in the, “So was once offered to bear the sins of many; and to them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin to salvation” (Heb 9:28). “I have yet many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. However, when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth” (Jhn 16:12-13). These verses tell us that Jesus will return to save mankind. The second salvation is to help us cast off the binds and strictures of sin. In addition, the returned Jesus will express the truth to us, and lead us to gain more truth. Truth can bring true freedom to people. Only if we gain the truth from God in the last days and do all things according to the truth, can we live freely under the guidance of God.
