Our Authority

“The people were amazed at (Jesus’) teaching, because He taught them as one who had authority, not as the teachers of the law” (Mark 1:22).

All those who had passed through the years of concentrated teaching that qualified them as rabbis had authority to teach the people. What was different about Jesus? Of course, He was God in human flesh. He not only taught the truth and revealed the light, He was truth and light and there was no sin in Him. Is that what gave Him added authority?

My Son did not walk the earth as God but as a man filled with My Spirit. The Spirit was given Him to empower Him for ministry (v10), and His constant choice of a sinless life never blocked that power. Every moment of every day He was a visual picture of Me, and the Spirit who wrote the Scriptures opened up their true meaning and gave Him the ability to share it with My people in a way they could understand.

This same authority is available to you (Matthew 28:18,19). At all times when My Spirit is the controlling factor in your life, you too will truly represent Me. It comes down to the constant choices you make to give Me full control.
