Meditate and Digest: Leading with Authority

For even if I boast a little too much of our authority, which the Lord gave for building you up and not for destroying you, I will not be ashamed. (2 Corinthians 10:8 ESV)


God calls all Christians to go and make disciples. That means you will be a leader in some capacity. With that position comes authority.

As you lead this week and beyond, focus on this verse and keep in mind the authority that God Almighty gives you as a believer is for the purpose of building up others, not destroying them. The message of righteousness by faith frees, empowers, purifies, and lifts out of destruction. May you go out in the authority of that Good News with a supernatural boldness and love.
