With authority

Dearly Beloved,
Grace and Peace to you.
      
         “A new teaching—with authority!”
                  —Mark 1.27

         Authorization
God, you give me authority to heal,
to confront evil, to reveal your grace.
I embrace the role you give me.

         Expertise
Jesus’ knew what he was talking about,
and his acts and words harmonized.
May I live out your true delight.

         Power
You gave Jesus power to resist evil,
power to effect change.
I accept the power you give me.

         Authenticity
Jesus didn’t teach a list of beliefs,
but gave of himself.
Help me to be authentic and present.

         Authoring
Jesus wrote a new story in people’s lives.
Use me to me create anew,
to write a new page in the story of your love.

By your Spirit in me
help me be
your living, authentic teaching.
         
        

Deep Blessings,
Pastor Steve
