The third session that Steve Volle spoke on at our Refresh Conference last month was about how the Word of God authorizes us. Not only does it pardon us and give us the ability to enter into God’s presence clean and free of all guilt, but God authorizes us to do His work. It was Jesus who stood up in front of the 5,000 and said, “You are the salt of the earth, you are the light of the world…” It seems like that should be His job. But no, He has authorized us to act on His behalf because of the work He did on the cross.
Many of us, I believe, have yet to really take up this idea that we are authorized and that the same power that raised Jesus from the dead lives in us. So, listen to Steve as he unpacks this idea and motivates us to live in this authorization: God’s Word Authorizes Us
