“For the Lord’s sake, respect all human authority – whether the king as head of state, or the officials he has appointed.” — 1 Peter 2:13 (NLT)

We often struggle with authority – particularly when they seem to be getting things wrong, in our opinion. But the Bible is very clear – we must respect all human authority – whether we agree with what them or not. You see, the Bible says that all authority has been appointed by God Himself. And you wouldn’t argue with God, would you?

May we pray, that we respect all authority, whether we agree with them or not. We ask for the grace to accept their decisions, however difficult that may be. We ask this in the name of your precious Son, Jesus; Amen.
