21 Sep Matthew 28:18
18 And Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.”
Do you remember when we first started to study Jesus’ life and ministry? After He was baptized, what happened? He was tempted by Satan in the desert! (Matthew 4) One of Satan’s temptations was to give Jesus all the kingdoms of the earth yet Jesus stayed obedient to God. Jesus knew the promise from God, and through His death and resurrection, Jesus was given authority over all the earth AND Heaven! This means that Jesus is in charge no matter what. Also, should always follow Jesus’ example and remain obedient even in the face of temptation.
