Who Is In Charge?
One of the big controversies in church these days, is "who is in charge?" Some say the preachers...some vote...some have some sort of denominational organization who makes the rules.
What Does The Bible Say?
Matthew 28:18-20 says... "Then Jesus came to them and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."
From this scripture, we learn:
•1. Jesus has "all authority".
•2. If Jesus has all authority, then we really have none.
•3. Jesus gives the commands such as evangelism.
•4. We are to teach and obey His commandments.
•5. This is comforting to us to know the one who has all authority has the power to ‘be with us always.'
