February 22, 2017 – Attitude #5

In 1 Timothy 2:1-3, Paul reveals the attitude believers should have toward those who rule over us. Even if we didn’t vote for them, even if we don’t agree with them, we should pray for them and give thanks for them.  Our attitude toward our government and those in authority should be based on what God’s Word teaches. It teaches that those who resist authority resist the ordinance of God, which is an authoritative order or decree.
