In our last visit we started a topical study of “authority” as found in the book of Matthew. We looked at references that mentioned authority: Matthew 7:29; 8:9; and 9:6, 8.  In Chapter 10:1 you find Jesus delegating authority to his disciples. Only one who has authority is able to delegate authority to others.

As you continue reading Matthew notice other examples of His authority.  He delivered some from demon possession, resisted Satan, calmed the storm tossed sea and offered peace to troubled hearts.

Correlating this information into an outline might look like this: title ‑ The Authority of King Jesus. Main points would be: 1. He taught with authority, 2. He delivered people from bondage with authority, 3. He healed with authority, 4. He controlled nature with authority, 5.He saved from sin with authority, 6. He delegated authority. 

When you’ve developed an outline you need to crystallize your discoveries into applications. When I did this I came up with the following:  The first one I thought of was, since He taught with authority I should learn thoroughly and take seriously what He taught. Second, I should confess my sins to Him and trust Him to forgive me.  Third, as I seek to serve Him I should rely on His authority to carry out my assignments since I only have delegated authority.  But when I faithfully represent Him who delegated it to me His authority kicks in and accomplishes what He intends to do.  This is how His power and authority is demonstrated in and through my life.
