Today my brother Daniel preached. The passage he talked on was 1 Peter 2:13-17. The gist of what he was saying, was, (as Peter is talking about in that particular section), we should obey the government.
In verses thirteen-fourteen, he brought out that it is the governments job to punish evil, and that it’s God that put the government into place. Here, he also brought out Romans 13:1-4, in order to support what he was saying.
In verse fifteen, he brought out how the majority of citizens in America mock the government. Here he also brought out an example of a site that’s sole goal was to publish one hundred government-mocking videos in the span of twenty-four hours. Here, he also posed the question, “What if they saw us, instead of going along with them, not mocking the government; would it cause them to stop doing it themselves?”
Finally, he ended on verse sixteen, with the statement that, we should live free, because we are free. Here, he also brought out Romans 6:1-2, to finalize his point.
You are Loved!
