John 19.10-11 “Do you refuse to speak to me?” Pilate said. “Don’t you realize I have power either to free you or to crucify you?” Jesus answered, “You would have no power over me if it were not given to you from above.
I got to thinking about power and authority. I realized once again that all power and authority comes from the Father in heaven above. Jesus, the most powerful Person on earth, used His power to love and serve others. I sensed the Lord say, "John, use the power I gave you to love and serve Me and other people".
What about you? Do you see your power and authority coming from above? How are you using it? For yourself or others?
