To know the power of His resurrection

As the Coptic church is still celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ, we will talk about a verse that reveals the deep relationship between Christians and Jesus Christ. The bible says: “I want to know Christ—yes, to know the power of his resurrection and participation in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death” (Philippians 3:10)

Father Benjamin Muharraqi in his book "I know the power of His resurrection” said that we should know God and develop such knowledge every single day with our faith.
We don’t need many proofs for His resurrection since it is above reason and nature. However, we should benefit from resurrection in our lives and put our hope in the other life.
We should seek treasures on the earth no more. We rather seek the kingdom of God and His glory. The seven sacraments of the Coptic church translate the new life that we received after his resurrection. We move to another life while we receive communion in order not to die.
