Exiles Under Authority (1 Peter 2:13-17)

David Duignan, June 26, 2016
Part of the 1 Peter series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

What do you think about your local T.D.? Is the present government indistinguishable from the last? How do you feel about the Gardai? Do you mutter under your breath when you're driving and see a police car checking how fast your driving? Peter teaches us, as Christians, how we are to relate to our countries authorities.

1 Peter 2:13-17

13Submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord's sake: whether it be to the king, as supreme; 14Or unto governors, as unto them that are sent by him for the punishment of evildoers, and for the praise of them that do well. 15For so is the will of God, that with well doing ye may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men: 16As free, and not using your liberty for a cloke of maliciousness, but as the servants of God. 17Honour all men. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honour the king. (KJV)
