Praying with spiritual authority
The spiritual understanding gained from the study of Jesus’ teachings enables us to assert with confidence God’s healing presence.
Christ Jesus was deeply humble in his recognition of God’s supreme power. Yet the Bible makes clear that he was no pushover. According to the Gospel of Mark, his preaching astonished listeners, “for he taught them as one that had authority, and not as the scribes” (1:22).
Nowhere is that authority more convincingly illustrated than in the Master’s quick and effective healings, which were often preceded by commands, such as “Come forth,” “Be thou clean,” “Stretch forth thy hand,” and “Rise, take up thy bed, and walk.”
