Scripture:
“The people were amazed at his teaching, because he taught them as one who had authority, not as the teachers of the law.” ~Mark 1:22

Observation:
The people recognized authority in Jesus. I don’t know if the teachers of the law in His day were timid, but however authoritative they could possible have been, it couldn’t compare to The Authority. Paul and the other disciples also seemed to have had some of this authority, because when they spoke many chose to follow Jesus as well.

Application:
do my words carry the authority of Jesus when I am speaking about Him? Do I remember to ask God for His Authority when I am speaking to others?

Prayer:
Father, Jesus and the disciples spoke with authority straight from You and, as a result, were very effective in calling others to repentance and faith. I talk to people about You on a regular basis. Give me not only Your Authority, but also the words You would have me speak. I want Your Authority, but I also want to be communicating a message that is from You.
