Luke 20:2 and said to him, “Tell us by what authority you do these things, or who it is that gave you this authority.”
Jesus did things that others could not. There was no natural answer to his power so all they could question was the authority he performed his power in.
In life there is always more to the story. It’s not just about what is done, but also why, how and who for. In the life of Jesus, these answers were clear…
Why- Reveal His Glory/Meet needs
How- He is God
Who for- Father’s Glory
Are the answers to these questions clear in my life?
What- What am I doing/not doing?
Why- what is my motivation?
How- by what authority/ power am I operating in?
Who for- Who’s getting the attention/affection?
Father, may these answers be clear for me everyday.
