Because Christ Died for me…I Want to Respect His Authority

Matthew 28:18-20

  1. The Authority of Christ was given by God the Father. (v. 18) (Exousia)
    • “All authority is *given unto me* in heaven and earth.”
    • Jesus had full God authority when he was on earth.
  1. The Authority of Christ includes Heaven and Earth. (v. 18)
    • “All authority [exousia] is given unto me in *heaven and earth*”
    • What does authority in the Heavens mean?
    • Authority over angels.  (Hebrews 1:6)
    • Authority over Principalities and Powers. (Ephesians 1:20)
    • Why do so many Christians live in fear of the devil?
    • What does authority over the earth mean?
    • Authority over the church.  (Colossians 1:18)
    • Authority over society.
    • What does authority under the earth mean?

 

  1. The church is not defeated.
    • What does that mean?
    • It means that the church, while it may seem like it sometimes…is not ineffective.
    • So, what should the church be doing now?
    • The Church has the Authority to save and to judge.
  1. Believers and unbelievers will be judged by Jesus Christ.
    • Believers and unbelievers will be judged separately.
    • Jesus does execute judgment.
    • Believers will be judged for what they did and did not do. (Matthew 25:34-36)
    • Unbelievers will be judged for what they did not believe. (Matthew 25: 41-43, 46)
    • We must live life knowing that Christ not only saves, He judges.
  1. We must Believe in Christ’s Authority.
    • The key to have spiritual authority in our lives.
    • Faith for victorious living.
