Day 16 – April 19 – Authority of Jesus

Mark 11:27-28 And they came again to Jerusalem. And as he was walking in the temple, the chief priests and the scribes and the elders came to him, and they said to him, “By what authority are you doing these things, or who gave you this authority to do them?”

Who/what is the king of your life?
What evidence is there to demonstrate the presence of this king?

Confess areas in your life where you have lived by your authority rather than Christ’s.

E-devotion by Benny Stofer (Worship Pastor)

In today’s devotion, the question is asked, “Who or What is the king of your life?” That is a very good question because it’s answer is pivotal in our faith walk. Somehow, the religious leaders in Jesus’ day knew that there was something different about Him, but His authority just didn’t fit into their formula for life. Everything was orderly and structured in their position on the hierarchical religious ladder as those who knew the law, interpreted the law, and enforced the law.

Our experience with authority is not that much different. Everything within us wants to control our environment, but we often realize that our lives are not really within our control at all. There has to be One in our lives who is competent to “call the shots.” There has to be One who has proven His love for us, proven His faithfulness to us, and proven His wisdom to know what is best for us. That “One” is Jesus. He proved these things by forgiving our sins, washing us clean within, giving us peace, giving us direction, and giving us eternal life.

Let’s surrender our need for control to His authority. Today, let’s live as those who have been created and redeemed for a better way: under the loving, caring, and wise authority of our Savior and Lord, Jesus Christ.
