Recommended prayer: • Lord, help us live in such a way that those who know us but don’t know You will get to know You because they see You in us.
Looking unto Jesus A Servant with Authority
Authority • How can a servant have authority? • He usurps it – Satan • He has a higher position than another servant - story of debtors • Authority was given to him - Joseph
Mar 10:45 "For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.“ God the Son came to serve
A Servant with Authority • Phil 2 He took the role of humble servant • Yet throughout the Gospels Jesus the Christ has supreme authority Mt 28.18 • Not a grasping, self-proclaiming glory seeker
The Authority He expressed as a man was God given, verified by others, and a benefit to all.
v.12-14 Jesus Was Under Authority • in testing • in timing • v.15ff Jesus Displays Authority • v.15-22 When He Spoke • v.21-42 Over Demons and Disease
So what? • He has the attitude of a caring servant • Your best in mind • with the authority of God to deliver you from evil. • Satan’s many forms of attack
His Name is Wonderful His name is Wonderful, (3x) Jesus my Lord; He is the Mighty King, Master of everything, His Name is Wonderful, Jesus my Lord!
He’s the great Shepherd, the Rock of all ages, Almighty God is He! Bow down before Him, love and adore Him; His name is Wonderful, Jesus my Lord.
