Are You Using Your Authority Well?

When most people hear the word authority or think of the patriarchy, toxic masculinity, crony capitalism, authoritarianism, a power-hungry boss, or abusive parents, coaches, or teachers… The constant in all these cases is that the one in authority is not serving or seeking the best of those under them. They are abusing their role to amass power, which is antithetical to God’s intention for this vital role in His Kingdom. God calls us to authority, but not the authority we are all too familiar with in this fallen world. He says to those in authority, “Whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first must be your slave” (Matthew 20:26-27). Let’s look at God’s structure for authority–the only authority that leads to freedom, flourishing, and functional human relationships for those it serves.
