THE AUTHORITY OF A CHRISTIAN!
Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you (Luke 10:19).
Every Christian has authority in Christ Jesus. A Christian is expected to know his authority in Jesus Christ, and live his life as such. When you fail to know your authority in Christ Jesus, you will live your life in bondage and as a slave to the devil. The Bible says in the opening text that behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you. Every Christian is expected to take note of the fact that the key to his authority lies in the Name of Jesus Christ.
Anyone who wants to exercise his authority over Satan and his cohorts, he is expected first and foremost to identify himself with Jesus Christ and accept Him as his Lord and Savior. That is why the Bible tells us in John 1:12, “But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name.” Jesus Christ has already given His authority to every Christian; therefore, it is expected of you as a Christian to kindly exercise the bequeathed authority to the glory of God.
The authority of a Christian is in the Name of Jesus Christ. It is expedient that a Christian knows the authority in His Name, and learns to use it as a demand. A Christian should use the Name of Jesus Christ as a mandate to access his privileges in Christ Jesus. That is the reason why the Bible says in Philippians 2:10, “That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth.” There are absolutely no powers in heaven, earth and in the abyss that could withstand the authority of Jesus Christ’s Name.
Daily Tip: Every Christian is expected to know and exercise his authority in the Name of Jesus Christ. Shalom!
