PRAY OVER THIS:
“Therefore submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord’s sake, whether to the king as supreme, or to governors, as to those who are sent by him for the punishment of evildoers and for the praise of those who do good.” 1 Peter 2:13-14
Those who are God-fearing Americans will also be law-abiding Americans. We will submit ourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord’s sake, to the laws we like and to the laws we do not like. In every law that does not contradict the Law of God, we are to be submissive. There is a higher power, and if the laws of man absolutely contradict the Law of God, then we must do what the apostles did in Acts 5, when they looked at those who commanded them no longer to preach, and they said, “We ought to obey God rather than men” (Acts 5:29).
