The unfathomable δύναμις

Hi dear friends 👋

This is your friend, the Bible blogger 😃🙏

Welcome to Our Daily Bible bytes.

The δύναμις

Today I have selected this Greek noun “δύναμις” which is pronounced as “dunamis.” I love it because it’s a powerful noun. It means strength, power and ability. We all have power to certain degrees.

Let me quote from the Holy Bible.

Mark 12:24 NASBS
Jesus said to them, “Is this not the reason you are mistaken, that you do not understand the Scriptures or the power of God?

The test

Sadducees were a group of people who didn’t agree with the teachings of Jesus. They presented a hypothetical situation before Jesus Christ. They wanted to test his knowledge. They had serious objections about resurrection.

The reply

Jesus Christ replied to them that they were going wrong simply because of two reasons. They couldn’t comprehend the Holy scripture and they didn’t understand the power (dunamis) of God.

The owner

We make mistakes when we don’t believe in God who is a powerful God. Who owns all the powers?

Matthew 6:13 NASBS
‘And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from evil. [For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.’]

Yes, the source of all power is in God. He controls the entire cosmos by his own strength.

Luke 6:19 NASBS
And all the people were trying to touch Him, for power was coming from Him and healing them all.

Power of Jesus

Jesus Christ was full of divine power because He is God. People realised that Jesus Christ has the healing powers and they came with faith and got healed by touching him.

Luke 9:1 NASBS
And He called the twelve together, and gave them power and authority over all the demons and to heal diseases.

Power of disciples

Jesus Christ delegated power and authority to his disciples. The disciples didn’t have inherent powers to heal and to cast demons. They had to depend upon Jesus Christ to delegate those powers.

We can discuss lots about the power of God however we have time and space crunch.

You have power!

Dear friend, are you feeling weak then go to Jesus Christ in faith. He will fill you with his power.

2 Corinthians 12:9 NASBS
And He has said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.” Most gladly, therefore, I will rather boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me.

May the words of Christ Jesus encourage you.

Shalom 🕊️
