    Christians are to live with the athority of God. However, most never use it so they loose it.

    Authority This morning we are considering the word authority. For young people it is a bad word….almost a “four letter” word..

    based on 3 ratings
     | 1,638 views

    Wanting to do something and actually being able to do it are two entirely different things. Jesus may have been introduced as the ultimate action hero but without action it's just a good sound bite. In this study the hero demonstrates His authority and ab

    It is one thing to claim you can do something and it’s quite another to actually accomplish it. When I was four years old, like a lot of kids my age, I was enamored with Mighty Mouse. One day I remember grabbing a blanket and running around the neighborhood with it wrapped around my neck like ...read more

    Paul is talking about the way some people questioned the way himself and other men of God were being paid by the Church. Questioning about administration is something natural.

    1 Corinthians 9:1-9 1 Am I not free? Am I not an apostle? Have I not seen Jesus our Lord? Are not you my workmanship in the Lord? 2 If to others I am not an apostle, at least I am to you, for you are the seal of my apostleship in the Lord. 3 This is my defense to those who would examine me. ...read more

    Many scholars and preachers treat today's passage as an extension of last week's exhortation for husbands and wives to submit to one another. They call the section between chapter 5 verse 21 and chapter 6 verse 9 "house codes." Paul almost certainly drew from well-known early Christian teachings ...read more

    By What Authority? Luke 19:45-20:8 Luke has just given extensive coverage of the Triumphal Entry on Palm Sunday. (See sermon: “It’s My Party, and I’ll Cry if I Want To”) So why does Luke give only one verse to the cleansing of the Temple when Matthew and especially Mark ...read more
