Romans 13:1-2

by Rev Joel Yong

Romans 13:1-2 declares: “Everyone must submit to governing authorities. For all authority comes from God and those in positions of authority have been placed there by God. So anyone who rebels against authority is rebelling against what God has instituted and they will be punished.”

Scripture tells us that in submitting to our authorities here on Earth, we honor God. We show that we trust that He is sovereign and in charge – by obeying, even when we find it difficult to submit to our authorities on Earth.
