Mark 11:27-33 / Mark 12:9-12
Authority (Tuesday)

It's the third day of the final week of Jesus. We see the authority of Jesus questioned and expressed. Jesus never asked the religious leaders permission to heal, to teach, to drive out demons, or to drive out the money changers. When we give Jesus full authority over our lives, then He doesn’t need to seek permission to work in our hearts and to call us to do difficult things. By what authority do you live your life? Do you live it to your own authority, or the authority of Jesus?
