The Use Of Authority

What do you think of when you hear the word Authority?  Do you think of the police, the government, the supreme court, your parents or your boss?  Do you think of the times that Authority has failed you or that it has been corrupted?  The Authorities that humans have created are prone to failures and flaws and can result in the oppression of people as a result, but the Authority of Christ is pure and true.  True freedom is found by submitting ourselves to the perfect Authority of Christ.  The Authority of truth and love.

He gives orders to the evil spirits and they obey him.  Mark 1:21-25
