The Authority of Jesus (Luke 5)

with Ron Deal | November 27, 2018

Do you remember the story in Luke 5 about the guy who was paralyzed and Jesus said, "Your sins are forgiven," and the critical Pharisees said, "Who can forgive sins but God?" So Jesus proved he could forgive by healing him and the man walked. Well, the witnesses glorified God and we are reminded that he who has the authority to heal and to forgive sin also has the authority of Lord. We often run to Jesus when we need healing or forgiveness. Don't forget to give him authority over your life.
