Title: “Invoke His Authority”

Scripture Reading: Matthew 28:18-20 (NIV)

“Then Jesus came to them and said, ‘All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.'”

In the commissioning words of Jesus, we discover the source of true authority. Today, let’s explore Matthew 28:18-20 and reflect on the call to “Invoke His Authority.”

Jesus declares that all authority in heaven and on earth has been given to Him. As believers, our authority is derived from Him, and we are called to operate in the power of His name.

In light of His authority, Jesus gives the Great Commission—calling us to go, make disciples, baptize, and teach. This commission is not based on human strength but on the authority of the risen Christ.

To “Invoke His Authority” means recognizing and exercising the authority Jesus has given us. It involves living out the Great Commission with confidence, knowing that we act under the supreme authority of our Lord.

Lord Jesus, we acknowledge your authority over all things. Empower us to boldly invoke your authority as we fulfill the Great Commission. May our actions and words reflect your lordship, bringing glory to your name. Thank you for being with us always. In your mighty name, we pray. Amen.
