When I looked it up in the dictionary, it had three meanings
The act of rising from the dead
The state of those risen from the dead
A rising again as from decay or disuse
Either way, it's a really good thing! And also very cool. It basically means something that was dead has been brought back to life. Something that was in a state of decay and disuse has now been restored and is useful.
If you know anything about God Almighty, you know He's in the business of resurrection. And I don't just mean bringing dead people back to life. I also mean bringing life back into your finances, your health, your relationships, etc. He LOVES to breath life into decaying and useless things!
Jesus told us Himself “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die" John 11:25
In fact, anyone who comes in close contact with God cannot help but be resurrected. God is life. He is the Creator of all life. You cannot be close to Him and not be changed!
Elisha died and was buried. Now Moabite raiders used to enter the country every spring. Once while some Israelites were burying a man, suddenly they saw a band of raiders; so they threw the man’s body into Elisha’s tomb. When the body touched Elisha’s bones, the man came to life and stood up on his feet. 2 Kings 13:20-21
I recently came across this story in Kings and it blew me away. Elisha was a mighty prophet of God who had preformed countless miracles, even raising people from the dead himself. Yet after his own death, as they were burying Him, God's presence, God's life-giving power was still so strong on Elisha's body that when a dead man touched Elisha's bones, he sprang back to life! Amazing.
When you were dead in your sins and in the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made you alive with Christ. He forgave us all our sins, Colossians 2:13
You may not feel like your spirit has been resurrected, but if you're a follower of Jesus, it has! You have the Holy Spirit indwelling you, reviving your man-spirit and keeping it protected until you die and the Angels come to escort you to Heaven. Not only that but God indwells you. That means His resurrection power is beaming out from within you to a broken world. Like Elisha, our very bones should be so saturated with God that anyone who comes in contact with us should be affected in a positive way. Their spirits should feel something, sense something beautiful and hopeful and peaceful. They should sense Life!
If that's not happening, then perhaps we should pray the prayer from Ephesians 3 that says
