"The hope of glory" means more than one thing..
"Resurrection power" is one. The power that raised Jesus is in us.
----
If the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of His Spirit who lives in you.
Romans 8:11
