The article discusses the texts of Corinthians, 2nd, 12:2-10 and Mark 6:1-13 which are on the authority of people as leaders as well as the people of God. It mentions the real authority wielded by Saint Paul while leading his ministry, which is manifested in his devotion to Jesus Christ. It discusses how Paul never thought of exercising a monopoly over the leadership of church, and preached the Corinthians. It suggests people to lead with real authority, which is grounded in Christ.
