Respecting Authority – Rom 13:1-14
In Romans 13, we continue with the halacha of how we are to live our lives in this new Community of Faith. Throughout this chapter, the apostle Paul speaks of our relationship as disciples of Yeshua to authority.
John challenges us all to reexamine our individualistic mindsets and consider how and why we need to be under biblical authority, even (especially?) if we are in positions of authority ourselves. We need to learn to obey authority; otherwise, the church will have no testimony on earth. We need to model authority to some and submission to others.
