Authority in Jesus

Authority in Jesus - Home Group Bible Study Series #4

When your mind is going FIVE (or more) directions at once – take authority over your mind in Jesus name and command your mind to come into submission to Jesus and the Holy Spirit.

[ The Humbled and Exalted Christ ] Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus. (NKJV)

The scripture wouldn’t state this if it were not possible – God is faithful!
Take authority over the things in your life which are defeating you.

2 Corinthians 10:3-5 
3 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. 4 For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, 5 casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ (NKJV)

Prayer: Father I want to glorify You. I need your help. AMEN
Christ in us is the hope of glory. Fruit bearing glorifies Him.

To them God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.

Authority in Jesus comes in various ways:
1.     Fasting – deny your flesh and Christ comes forward
2.     “Word of God” is a feast – stand on the Word – claim those promises – let His Word change you
3.     Prayer – don’t just ask, get a notebook and listen to Him – write it down
4.     Praise
5.     Thankfulness
6.     Service – being available to be obedient
7.     Giving

Romans 5:3-5 3 And not only that, but we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance; 4 and perseverance, character; and character, hope. 5 Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us. (NKJV)
