Matt. 8:8. Being under authority protects and empowers you and does not control in a manipulative way. Do not see yourself as the one who is manipulated. Authority is meant to liberate and to build up. You will never have more authority than the authority you are under. In Eph. 5:22-33, we are shown that the authority in the family is derived from the authority of the church, and you can’t understand that authority unless you understand church authority. When you leave a church it is like a divorce. Pastor Dale shares a couple experiences in which he had to submit to authority and how God took care of “you-know-whos”. God, reveal Your Glory to the church!
