The Kings Authority | Bayli Webb
“All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.”
In society we have higher people in authority over us, some may think they even have authority over certain things in their lives but taking a look at verse 18 again Jesus saids “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.” Jesus reigns authority over ALL things! try and think of all those higher people in authority over you right now compared to Christ’s….. just take a seat. This verse humbles my heart so much and reminds me of how our risen King has infinite power and authority over EVERYTHING in our lives. Jesus is the risen Christ! bow down to Him, worship Him, trust Him and obey Him. John Piper stats “Easter is the claim of the risen Christ on every life that breaths. “All authority on earth is mine” your business is His to rule; your career is His to rule; your home is His; your children are His; your body is His; He is God!” Don’t ignore or resist this because He is God through whom and for whom all things exist. I encourage you this week to get in your place of prayer (mark 14:33) and to praise our King for his absolute authority. Set yourself on the road of faith and obedience and expect Him to meet you on your way.
Dear God, thank you for sending your one and only son down to die the death we deserved. We stand in awe of you Jesus, I pray for our hearts to be humbled and for us to bow down to your supremacy Lord. In Jesus name, Amen.
