The Real Deal

I have a question for everyone today.

What is real authority and how do you obtain it?

“They were amazed at his teaching; for He was teaching them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.” – Mark 1:22, NASB

Jesus taught with real authority, unlike everyone else.

Where did that authority come from?

My Opinion: He would essentially eat, sleep, and breathe God’s Word and prayer… EVERY DAY.

You want real authority? Do the same.  Eat God’s Word and prayer for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Now, enough about my opinion… what do you think???

One thought on “The Real Deal

  1. Gary says:

    Well said. But I’d add “live out what you read” so you don’t become Pharisee-like – having it all in the head but nothing in the heart – which means that nothing of any spiritual value comes from your reading and ultimately, you miss Jesus altogether.

    John 5:39-40 (NIV) – “You diligently study the Scriptures because you think that by them you possess eternal life. These are the Scriptures that testify about me, yet you refuse to come to me to have life.”
