The apostle Paul writes of the resurrection power of God.

Romans 4:25 He . . . was delivered over because of our transgressions, and was raised because of our justification. (NASB)

These words are part of this New Testament chapter that talk about Old Testament Abraham's faith.  Abraham started off as a pagan man living in a pagan society -- when God came to him and told him to go to a place God would reveal.  Abraham's job was to pack up and start moving -- it was God's job to lead him.  Abraham's faith was simply responding to the offer of God.

What is God offering you today?  I read of a couple who were just starting life; had kids; good jobs ... God stirred their hearts to sell their roomy home, give up their jobs, and reduce their possessions  with yard sales -- and move to a trailer park in a crime infested neighborhood to plant a church!  The couple said, "commitment comes before clarity."  That's what Abraham did.  That's what you can do.  The same God who raised Christ from the dead and gave Abraham a son after age 100, can resurrect the deadness of your life and lead you to a place touched by His grace!
