The Pharisees of Jesus’ day boasted of their position in the kingdom of God and questioned what Jesus meant by the freedom we have as believers: “They answered him, We be Abraham’s seed, and were never in bondage to any man: how sayest thou, Ye shall be made free? Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin. And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: but the Son abideth ever. If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed” (John 8:33-36).
With Kingdom Authority comes freedom, not bondage. These Pharisees who were vassals of Rome and slaves to sin were boasting about freedom. They were not free but slaves. The rebel is free to do what he wants within limits, but he is never free to do what he ought without Kingdom Authority operating in him. He is free to choose as he wishes, but he is not free to choose the consequences of that choice. He may show his freedom to choose by stepping out of a window of a skyscraper. At that point, however, he is not free to choose the consequences of that choice. The choice then chooses for him.
The world is obsessed with power. But the Bible reveals the most awesome power of all: that of kingdom authority—the same power unleashed when God raised Jesus Christ from the grave. The good news is that this same power—the greatest power in the universe—is available to every believer today. But most Christians never experience this power. They live in darkness and defeat of the world and its weaknesses. Satan and his minions work to keep them from the inheritance that is theirs. But Adrian Rogers can show readers how to become a part of the awesome power of God’s working in the world to build his kingdom.
