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.

    Pray that His will be done and that all hindres be removed. That all soul winning, and finacial provision for me to do and to be His Evanglist/Mouth piece in these end times is in His authority. All nations that I am to preach in is in His authority. The blockages and agents that seek to divert my path are in His authority.
    Blessings and Love in Christ

  5. D.S.Rajsekhar, Triplicane, Chennai. says:

    He that followeth me, shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life,” says Christ, who declares Himself “the light of the world.” The true importance and design of which words is doubtless to instruct us that the way to be truly enlightened, and to deliver ourselves from a blindness of heart, is to make His holy life the object of our imitation, and to form our dispositions and actions upon the perfect model of that bright example. Lord, Thou art THE CHRIST, the HEAD of the body of CHRIST, the Church. Amen!

    My question is this when Peter denied Christ he got to live to save others are we really suppose to die by a crazy person or live to save others?

  7. Deborah says:

    The authority in my life has been my anger. Anger at injustice, anger at cruelty, anger at people who do unspeakable acts and see no consequences. God has asked me to give it all to Him and that”vengeance” is His. He asks me to love and forgive and pray for those who anger me. Thank you Jesus and may all I do and say come under your authority.
