We are a people called to live in the space between submission to every authority established by God and the call to obey God rather than human institutions. It’s a delicate balance; one that requires of us a posture of constant prayer and a spirit of deep humility. In that space between, we find both our hope and our archetype in Christ Jesus.
Follow along with this week’s sermon notes…
Submit yourselves for the Lord’s sake to every human authority: whether to the emperor, as the supreme authority, or to governors, who are sent by him to punish those who do wrong and to commend those who do right. For it is God’s will that by doing good you should silence the ignorant talk of foolish people. Live as free people, but do not use your freedom as a cover-up for evil; live as God’s slaves. ~ 1 Peter 2:13-16
