With authority

Dearly Beloved, Grace and Peace to you.                 “A new teaching—with authority!”                   —Mark 1.27

         Authorization God, you give me authority to heal, to confront evil, to reveal your grace. I embrace the role you give me.

         Expertise Jesus' knew what he was talking about, and his acts and words harmonized. May I live out your true delight.

         Power You gave Jesus power to resist evil, power to effect change. I accept the power you give me.

         Authenticity Jesus didn't teach a list of beliefs, but gave of himself. Help me to be authentic and present.

         Authoring Jesus wrote a new story in people's lives. Use me to me create anew, to write a new page in the story of your love.

By your Spirit in me help me be your living, authentic teaching.                   

Deep Blessings, Pastor Steve
