To read the Bible in a year, read Matthew 28 on February 15, In the year of our Lord 2016

By Don Ruhl

After His resurrection, the Lord Jesus appeared to His disciples several times, and during one of the last times, He informed them of His authority,

And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth” (Matthew 28.18).

Such all-encompassing authority had been given to Him, showing that Someone above Him gave Him that authority, and that was the Father. The Father gave Jesus authority beyond our wildest imagination, that of the whole universe. When we confess the Lordship of Jesus of Nazareth, we confess this far-reaching authority, which would include our lives also.
