    Where does the Christian's authority come from and how can we increase it in our lives?
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    Our Christian authority comes from our identity in Christ. One way we can increase that in our lives is by spending more time in intimacy with God.

    Jesus can pray to people to warn them of the error of their ways. It happened to Paul on the road to Damascus. Paul did not return to work for the chief priests/Sanhedrin. He gave up his salary and went to teach Christianity. He made tents and gained from what his people shared with him.

    Our authority comes from the Bible and as we read it and study it and live it out in our life under the guidance of the Holy Spirit we take on its' authority which glorifies Christ in our life.

    Saul, who was later called Paul, was not a believer when Jesus Christ knocked him off that horse. He was an "enemy" of Christ and thus His Church. Christ had to "blind" his blind-as-a-bat self in order for him to "see" the Light, so to speak. :)

    The inspiration of the scriptures is our authority. God breathed is a term the Bible uses!

    One of the best descriptions of the authority of the scriptures came from John Wesley. He described the living core of the Christian faith as being revealed in Scripture, illumined by tradition, vivified in personal experience, and confirmed by reason.
