Understanding Authority

Let’s face it: we all want to do as we please.

Authority is not a popular topic. If we’re honest, most of us will say we desire to do as we please and dislike being told what to do. Part of this resistance is good in that we do not want to be led astray or be harmed by others. There is a healthy desire to be independent. But there is also part of us that rebels against authority, even good authority.

Let’s face it: we all want to do as we please.

Authority is not a popular topic. If we’re honest, most of us will say we desire to do as we please and dislike being told what to do. Part of this resistance is good in that we do not want to be led astray or be harmed by others. There is a healthy desire to be independent. But there is also part of us that rebels against authority, even good authority.

The reality is that understanding and practicing biblical principles of authority will bring God’s blessing on our lives. There is actually safety and peace associated with practicing these principles.

This four-session study from Lou Turner focuses on “positional authority,” which is being under the authority of others. Being willing to submit to positional authority and a willingness to be accountable are foundational to achieving the spiritual authority God desires us to have, and living the abundant life His authority empowers us to live.
