Respect the Government


Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God. (Romans 13:1)

  • Sometimes we grumble about government.
     
  • We complained about the officials on duty.
     
  • But a proper respect for authority honors God.
     
  • “Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities,” Paul said (Romans 13:1).
     
  • We must have a healthy attitude toward the government.
     
  • It is for our good.
     
  • It is for the testimony of our faith.
     
  • And most of all, it is for God’s honor.
     
  • Let us thank God for people who are willing to serve in our local, state, and national governments.
     
  • Let us pray that they will seek righteousness and justice for the people.
     
  • And let us learn to respect those God has placed over us.
     
  • There is no authority except from God.
     
  • And the authorities that exist are appointed by God.
     
  • Our respect for the authorities will bring glory to God.
