Growing A Legacy Together
Monday, March 23rd – Matthew 28:18-20 (NIV)
“Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
This is a familiar passage. It’s about the Great Commission, what we are to do as His disciples. What caught my attention this time is: “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.” WOW, all authority. Most of us have a little authority, dads and moms over their kids, teachers over their students, team leads over the rest of the team… but ALL authority.  How great is our God. Jesus has authority over the principalities of the air, He has authority over the wind, rain, snow, sunshine, clouds, over EVERYTHING. He has given us a job to do and He has authority over that job and whatever comes our way to hinder it.  We can do it, by His authority.
Jesus, as we bow before you right now, thank You. Thank You for all that you went through for us. Thank You for Your love. Be with us today as we do our part to realize that because you have the authority, You have paved the way for us to do as you ask. Keep us in the center of Your will, protect us from the enemy of our souls. Amen
