January 9  
Daily Reading – Genesis 21 – 23 / Matthew 7

WHAT GOD HAS SAID:

Matthew 7:28-29 And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine:For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.


WHAT I HAVE SEEN:


If a man builds a boat from scratch, he remembers every detail about it. He recalls the splinters, and how to avoid them. He recalls the hours invested and the sacrifices made to build a vessel that will withstand the storms and hold up over time. If a man just reads about building a boat, he can only teach what he read.

    When Jesus taught with authority it was because He knew what it took to build a life. Not like the scribes who read about it, yet never met the builder. Christians have met the builder. Better yet we have a testimony of what He built-in our lives. 


WHAT DO YOU SAY:

  When you share Christ with others,
do you speak as one with authority?
