Submission to Government

Text: Romans 13:1-7, Genesis 9:5-7
Pastor Curt Stapleton

In spite of the current events of the past week, God’s word is timeless. Recall that when the Apostle Paul wrote Romans, he was a Roman citizen living under the cruel reign of Emperor Nero. Nonetheless, our mandate as Christians is to obey and submit to the lawful requirements of the civil magistrate, to understand that God sovereignly appoints our government and to trust that God’s eternal purposes will end in His perfect justice and rule.
