Romans 13.1 – 7

1Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God. 2Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation. 3For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same: 4For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil. 5Wherefore ye must needs be subject, not only for wrath, but also for conscience sake. 6For for this cause pay ye tribute also: for they are God’s ministers, attending continually upon this very thing. 7Render therefore to all their dues: tribute to whom tribute is due; custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; honour to whom honour.

God reigns! He is in control. Fear not, but be always obedient unto His Word. Choose your words wisely; speak the truth in love. For we are here as ambassadors of Christ, and our purpose is to introduce Him to those whom He calls to us.

Please continue to pray for our country and our world:

  • God’s people, to fall on our knees
  • hearts burning to know God
  • hearts burning to obey God
  • God give us eyes to see His will, where He desires us to work, how He desires us to offer the fruit He grows in us
  • end abortion, murder, thievery, idolatry, adultery
  • God’s light to drive away the darkness in the world and in hearts
