18 And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
Many people feel unqualified to operate in the authority that Jesus gave them. They seem to have the mindset that they need to somehow be given permission to start witnessing and walking out the new life they’ve received from Him. When you are born again there is no longer a question as to whether or not you have His power and authority living on the inside of you. Just like when you walk away from the DMV with a drivers license in your hand, you aren’t wondering if you’re allowed to get behind the wheel of a car and drive away. Jesus has given you a spiritual driver’s license. You have been granted, and are therefore expected, to walk in the same authority and power that Jesus did while He was living here on Earth. Just like you didn’t hesitate to get in the car and drive, you shouldn’t be hesitant to start walking out your faith knowing that all of Heaven has your back. Will there be bumps in the road, unexpected detours, adverse driving conditions, and various hazards along the way? Of course there will, but the Holy Spirit and His grace will be there to overcome anything that may come along and try to pull you off course. Jesus won’t revoke your license just because you may have gotten a traffic ticket or been in a fender bender. Don’t let fear of the what could happen keep you from pursuing what should happen. – Love and Blessings, Pastor Jeff
