On Sunday, April 30th I will be preaching on the role of government in our lives. As I scan my FB account, I am amazed at how people talk about our leaders. I certainly have my political bias, but I also understand a Biblical perspective that is far more significant than what I think of the decisions made by our elected leaders. I have never met anyone who does exactly what I think they should do in every situation. I have never met anyone who agrees with me on every possible topic. So how do I respond to those in government who have very different standards than me? I submit to their authority because they are established by God. When I understand that God is on the throne and no one, I mean no one, can act outside His sovereignty, then I am at peace with the world. Do I wish all decisions were made to accommodate me and align themselves perfectly with my beliefs? Sure, but I need to understand that, it is not my will that I long to have done on this earth, but His will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
