Those in authority are to submit to God as they are under God’s authority. We are all to serve with fear and trembling. This fear is out of reverence for who God is and in recognition of his power and authority over everything. If we are able to be reverent to God’s authority, it makes it possible for us to respect other authority.
Questions for further thought:
1. Does obedience come naturally to you? Why or why not?
2. What steps do you need to take?
Trusting authority may not come easily. We can follow Jesus’ example. Read Phil 2:5-8.
