Disciple-Making That Transforms
"The people were amazed at his (Jesus) teaching, because he taught them as one who had authority..." Mark 1:22 Recently I have been reflecting on how we follow, and the idea of authority is central to who we follow. In my Bible, I've written the following: "We only follow someone who has authority." This applies to our understanding of Jesus - if we don't admit to his Lordship and submit to his ultimate authority we will always seek to place our own agendas above his. If we follow Jesus well, he gives us the authority we need to lead well, so that others will want to follow (not us, but Jesus!).
