The Master and Savior we know said that He alone has all authority in heaven and on earth. Since He had all authority on earth, He assumed the right to direct the lives of all those whom He called to be His disciples. In the "Great Commission" He said that all those who believed were to be taught to obey everything He spoke in all the Gospels, especially the so-called hard sayings: "Go therefore and make disciples from all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to obey all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age." (Matthew 28:19-20) Our Master summoned His followers to active service as disciples, not weekend warriors who still carried on their jobs during the week. This was the only way to fulfill the "Great Commission" -- by making disciples who obey all His commands.
