Vital signs - Wednesday, May 20th, 2020
There are two Greek words for the word "power" in the Bible.
1- Dunamis- Dynomite- The power to do things beyond natural abilities.
2- Exousia- The power not to do something within your power to do.
It takes Dunamis to lift a car.
It takes Exousia to stop at one cookie.
It's the difference in being a champion or being foolish.
Tho Jesus walked on water, healed the sick, and raised the dead With Dunamis off the chart, His Greatest victory was won with Exousia. When he could have called on his father to put at his disposal 12 legions of angels to deliver him from the Roman soldiers and the cross, he didn't. A Legion is 6000. Jesus had 72,000 angels at his disposal but said no to the easy way out.
When you're tired and you want to quit, exercise Exousia!
When all you want to think about is you, exercise Exousia!
When you decide living for something bigger than yourself and being a God champion is what you want exercise Dunamis!
Today as believers, we have the power to change the world and to say no to our selfishness.
“Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.”
Ephesians 6:10 NKJV
