Jesus makes it clear to Martha in John 11 that he more than has power to raise Lazarus — he is resurrection, he is life. Then he raises Lazarus from the dead. Jesus is wanting to pass on this part of his nature to all who believe in him. There is more taking place here than a great miracle done for the sake of Lazarus and his sisters, though that certainly is part of what is happening. There is a demonstration of his being the resurrection, of his being life and an encouragement for his followers to tap into this — eternally.
The more I study about how to overcome sin, the more I see we need the power of resurrection to do so. This is what enables us to be a new creation, to change our very nature. We have no hope of radical change without it.
How can you see the power of resurrection changing you?

Kent Dickerson is a Christian writer, teacher, singer and lecturer. He calls his blog, “Remade Preacher”. The reason why that title was chosen was because God brought him back to full time ministry after leaving it for thirty years.
The primary reason for leaving Pastoral Ministry was a deep-seated struggle with pornography.
He facilitates two seminars.
-Spiritual Battle Plan, The Path To Victory
-Spiritual Battle Plan, the Armor Of God.
In both courses he calls upon men to first get into the battle against the sin in their lives and then to find new ways to call upon the Almighty God to lead, strengthen and protect them.
He also emphasizes helping each other as brothers.
In addition, versions of Spiritual Battle Plan are being developed for both men and women learners.
A new class/seminar, Be Transformed, is now available as well.
During the “Be Transformed” Seminar Kent teaches the art of analyzing one’s thinking patterns in order to allow renewing-of-the-mind transformation so that one can then devote one’s time to contemplating God.
Kent is currently authoring a book tentatively titled, “Remade! A preacher finds victory over pornography and complaint.”
He is also working on recording his first EP and videos Kent is from Abilene, Texas where he attended Abilene Christian University.
He currently lives in Pyeongtaek, South Korea as part of the U.S. military community.
