Being under authority has become a dirty word. It seems that no one wants to be under authority. It’s the generation of do your own thing. Man wants what he wants. Rebellion is bound up in the heart of a child. Man’s heart is the most deceitful thing on earth. It is also prevalent in the church. In Matthew, Jesus was in Capernaum. A centurion came up to Him. He asked Jesus to heal his servant. Jesus said I will go with you. The centurion said I am not worthy of you coming to my home. He said, I am a man under authority. I have servants, if I say go or come they will do it. He said to Jesus, just speak the word and my servant will be healed. Jesus said, I haven’t found so great a faith, no not in all Israel. It takes faith to be under authority. God said that He gives his children the measure of faith. It’s time to use it.
