Complete Authority

S. O. A. P.

Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!


Matthew 10:1

Jesus called his twelve disciples to him and gave them authority to drive out impure spirits and to heal every disease and sickness.


Jesus had called the disciples individually to follow Him sometime earlier. But now He calls them together for something entirely different. He gives them “Complete Authority” over evil spirits, sickness, and disease.


This, perhaps, is my favorite chapter in the Bible. It happens to be the chapter in which the disciples received their authority and marching orders to change the world. Jesus didn’t give them “Complete Authority” initially, because I believe He wanted them to first of all see Him in action so they would know what He expected of them. After Jesus ascended into heaven the disciples did not fail Him. They continued on with “Complete Authority” over the works of darkness, spreading the Good News. May we never forget that just like the early disciples we too have been given “Complete Authority” to move forward the Good News of Jesus.


Dear Jesus,

This AM I need a fresh touch from You in order to be reminded that I have “Complete Authority” over the works of darkness. Anything is possible in Your name! Amen
