The cross reveals God’s love. The resurrection demonstrates God’s power. Love without power is a weak sentiment. Power without love is tyranny and death. Love with power is LIFE. Through the cross and resurrection, God has shown Himself to be both absolute love and absolute power. Therefore God IS LIFE. And … when LOVE is in POWER - LIFE happens.
