Luke 20:9-19 (Parable of the Wicked Tenants)
Relational authority or positional authority--better to lovingly submit now rather than unwillingly alter. Do you know that you're under God's authority, and that He desires a loving relationship with you? What would your life and relationships be like knowing that God loves you and that you will answer to Him for your actions in response to His authority? Christ's relational authority is patient and sacrificial. How are you reflecting Christ's relational authority with others?
