The following is an extract from “I Must Never Again Let the Resurrection Become Something I Assume” – An Interview with Adrian Warnock on Blogging Theologically:
I think I am still painfully aware that I do not experience the same power that raised Christ from the dead as much as I should. Many Christians who have gone before have had a strong sense of personally knowing the risen Jesus. As Paul put it, I long “that I may know him and the power of his resurrection.” When I am most confident of the resurrection, I am most sure of my own salvation and future resurrection, most full of hope, most joyful, and most aware of Christ’s power in me. I know now that I must never again let the resurrection become something I assume.
