1 Peter 2:13-25; 3:15
Submission and Suffering
- None of us want it.
- It does fit with our current location and status.
The Problem We Have with Authority
- We rebel against some (most?) authority over us.
- "...For the Lord's sake" should change our opinion.
Reasons to Submit to Human Institutions
- These institutions are God ordained.
- Our motivation is to God.
- Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the emperor.
A God of Justice
- Let God be God.
- Let Jesus be our model.
Always be prepared to confound the negative people. Always be prepared to amaze the idiots and fools. Always be prepared to make a defense of your hope in Christ.
