God is looking for human beings who will accept the awesome authority God has delegated

Christian Author and Pastor Ron Craig

The primary point in these current lessons is to get across the biblical reality that God is not going to step down from His glorious throne to intervene in world problems, because He has already come down in the human form of Jesus Christ, and solved all human problems through His sacrifice, and through Holy-Spirit-empowered preaching of that redemptive message, and doing it in the all-authoritative name of Jesus Christ. In other words, God has delegated to His chosen representatives all of the authority we need to get the job done; and has commanded us to do it. His representatives are all of us Christians—born again into the family of God. Not just nominal church members! Continue reading God is looking for human beings who will accept the awesome authority God has delegated
