Jesus’ teaching was a whole lot different than the other teachers’ teachings.
The crowds were amazed because it was more powerful - he spoke as one who actually had authority!
Do you realize that Christ is in you, if you are a believer and have made him Lord? The same man who AMAZED crowds by his authority is in - you.
Yet so many believers walk around acting powerless. We walk and let situations in life trample over us. We let heartaches drown us.
No, the one who has authority over everything is in you.
Believe it. See it. Let your life show you believe this. Say to your problems, “You won’t overcome me. I can do everything through Him who gives me strength.”
So there, now you can stand firm. Standing, realizing you have access to His Power & Authority changes everything. You now have access to Him!
And as believers, it is now our calling to be what the Bible displays we should be. Stephen Furtick says it beautifully,
“I am a connector to the current of the power of Christ.”
We connect people to Christ’s power. Our lives, our love, our eyes, our hearts, our words - connect others to the current of the power of Christ.
RECOGNIZE the access, through Christ’s death and resurrection, you have to the power & authority of GOD.
CONNECT others to that power.
As a believer, YOU are a connector to the current of the power of Christ.
When Jesus had finished saying these things, the crowds were amazed at his teaching, because he taught as one who had authority and not as their teachers of the law. Matthew 7:28
Seeing His authority and power, they (and we) will be amazed! Because it is unlike any other.
RECOGNIZE and CONNECT! These best take place when quiet time with God has taken place!
Do you recognize the access we have to God’s power?
How can we connect others to the power of GOD?
Always remember: HE loves you :)
