Jesus gave authority
Jesus called his twelve disciples to him and gave them authority to drive out impure spirits and to heal every disease and sickness.
I’ve been reading Matthew 10 this morning and I really, really love it. I would type all of it out for you to read but this blog post would be too long and I would be sat here typing away forever – sorry! I recommend you go read it.
What I personally love about it is that Jesus called these twelve men to Him. He had them come to Him, and then He gave them authority to do His work.
In order for Jesus to give them authority, He needed them to hear from Him. Throughout the rest of chapter 10, Jesus is instructing them on how to go about their journeys in doing His work. He gives them pure, first-hand wisdom. He encourages them, warns them and is ultimately resourcing them with the wisdom that they will need whilst they are out there doing what He needs them to do. They need to hear the Truth.
This morning, I’m sat here with a full heart believing that Jesus is calling you to Him. He has authority He wants to give you, but you need to meet Him first. You need to meet Him, hear his Word, fill your heart with the Truth, and then He will pour out His authority and will over your life.
