The Authority and The Glory

“Then the devil, taking Him up on a high mountain, showed Him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time.” Luke 4:5
“And the devil said to Him, ‘All this authority I will give You, and their glory; for this has been delivered to me, and I give it to whomever I wish’.” Luke 4:6

The devil offering authority and glory to THE Authority and Glory? I blink hard.

Thank You, Lord Jesus, that even when You had gone through fasting and temptation for 40 days, You never forgot Who You were and all You had. And here’s a simple poem . . .

His

When the trials rage
and persecution comes
and I lose my senses
and come undone
may I yet remember
it’s by Jesus I’m claimed
and I have all I need
as I call on His name.

Fire Away!

“Who is this?”  Matthew 21:10
“Do You hear what these are saying?”  Matthew 21:16
“By what authority are You doing these things?”  Matthew 21:23

When Jesus entered Jerusalem, everyone had questions.

Thank You, Lord, for being the answer for us all.  And here’s a simple poem. . .

More Than A Teacher

“And so it was, when Jesus had ended these sayings that the people were astonished at His teaching, for He taught them as One having authority, and not as the scribes.”  Matthew 7:28-29

Jesus taught differently because He had first hand experience with the Kingdom of Heaven and God the Father.  He and they were one and the same.

Dear Jesus, please help those who only think of You as a great teacher, to understand You are so much more.  Here’s a simple poem . . .

The Master’s Life Lessons

You taught as someone
in the know

the people marveled
how that could be

and if they trusted
taking Your words to heart

their minds and souls were safe
on Your foundational rock.
