Respect for Authority

Have respect for authority. Jesus Christ was under the authority of His Father in heaven . . . He lived for one thing: to fulfill the will of the Father. Everyone is subject to some kind of authority. There is one chain of command and the ultimate authority at the top is God.

What is the authority in your life? Is it your selfishness? Your lust? Your greed? Or have you turned it all over to God and said, “Lord, You are going to be my authority?” When you are under authority, you are then able to assume authority.

Prayer for the day

There are still areas in my life that need to come under Your authority, Lord Jesus. Give me Your grace and strength to yield everything to You.

    Falling in love with Jesus is the key to total submission to His Authority, and to Holy Spirit’s leadership. It also means that Jesus is Lord over me and he cares for me and all that I’ve committed into the Father’s hands.

    To surrender your life to the authority of Jesus Christ is extremely wise. His magnificent Grace is more than sufficient.

  7. Maria Hatfield says:

    I am so thankful that God is the authority for my life and daily living. Although there was a time in my life that this was not so, today and tomorrow and the rest of my life he will serve as my main source of authority. While my Dad is 77 years old, I am so thankful he is a godly and caring father. I pray that I will always give him the respect he so rightfully deserves. Thank you God for the privilege of forgiveness.
