Authority

Rising Joy by Vicki Matheny

The one who comes from above is superior to all. The one who is from the earth belongs to the earth and speaks about earthly things. The one who comes from heaven is superior to all. John 3.31

Heaven is where God resides. It is a place that is hard for our minds to grasp. Jesus left heaven. He emptied himself by taking the form of a slave and looking like other men. He shared in human nature, Philippians 2.7. He spoke the words of God, John 3.34. God has placed all things under the authority of Jesus, John 3.35. Authority is power. Jesus has all power. It is his power that we should obey. He gives eternal life to the one who believes in him. However, just as there are two sides to every coin, the one who does not believe and rejects Jesus shall receive God’s wrath, John 3.36. It is important in whom we believe.
