Still 'fine-tuning' our process. You can get to the original article HERE

Should we trust someone who says they answer to no-one but
God? It may sound like a good intention, but how exactly are they jointly fit
to the body of Christ? How are they learning to follow Jesus without discerning
His body in the Church? How can you truly be in unity with Christ and the Church
if you make it your mission to prove that everyone is wrong except you?

 

Every disciple of Jesus is given authority to do Jesus’
work. It is God’s plan that the Church become the agency of like-minded
followers that work cooperatively in the message and works of the Gospel.

 

So how do you find your authority and how do you live in
unity with Christ and His Church? Authority implies that there is a hierarchy
of responsibility, and that power is released through learning submission, just
as Jesus submitted to the Father and earthly authorities.

 

Over the next few weeks are going to look at what the
Scriptures have to say about legitimacy in being called a servant of God. What
do we know about authority, submission, and spiritual covering?

 

In this series, we will look at how authority was given and
released in the New Testament Church.
