The doctrine of the authority of Christ is at the heart of of the answers to what motivates the church to send out their best people, resources and making sacrifices. The more people cherish the doctrine of Christ’s authority, the more they are willing to risk the and endure along the way.
This study really challenges of what you believe and live about the doctrine of the authority of Christ. How we respond to the authority of Christ indicates if we are living for Christ. What does authority suggest? Who is God and what does that mean for me. The study both addresses how the church responds to the authority of Christ and how we individually respond. Does the church recognize the authority of Christ? These are questions that we as Christians must ask ourselves and align ourselves with.
Some of the quotes I found encouraging.
Surrender, then is the important connection between abiding in Christ and cherishing his authority. Without surrender, there is no relationship. Where there is a relationship, one will cherish surrender more and more as the fruits of surrender become more apparent over time.
I found this study complete and highly recommend.
