Jesus' authority

Authority has never been supported well, much less in these days. Maybe that disapproval comes from the fact that those who have the authority have often abused it. What a difference with the authority of Jesus, He always used it for good and did not use it to impose His power on men. Often the great people of this world try to dominate, but Jesus was among His peers as one who served.
