Good Morning! “For the Lord’s sake, submit to all human authority—whether the king as head of state, or the officials he has appointed. For the king has sent them to punish those who do wrong and to honor those who do right.” 1 Peter 2:13-14NLT
Doing what is right is not always easy. In this scripture Peter was explaining the importance of authority and the protection provided when Christians were sharing their faith. However, we are also called to submit to authority and obey the laws that do not conflict with scripture.
In a world where laws are challenged and are changing rapidly, living under authority doesn’t seem like an easy task. But our Christ like behavior in the midst of chaos honors the Lord.
Continue to pray and stand in the gap for persecuted Christians around the world. Pray for our legal system and those in authority. May the Lord put more Bible believing – faith living Christians who seek Him in every decision in high places to transform our world and communities.
Keep praying! Keep seeking! Keep trusting!
