To add up, I have been having severe headache for the past weeks ever since my close Auntie Caring has died July 31, 2009...
And I think from the my title "Submit to God" is what I only need.
This was our Sunday's topic Bible Study and fellowship.
Submit to the rulers and masters, submit to the authority, I wanted to give up on my recent client now I don't want to submit to what he wants me to do as everything are confusing to me, still God speak to me.
Ephesians 5:21 Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ.
Submit and respect one another for Lord sake. As long as the commands are to do what is right, you have to do it and respect the authority.
Proverbs 24:21 Fear the LORD and the king, my son,
and do not join with the rebellious,
For the Lord sake, even if the authority are not Christians, it was God's will they were in that position.
Romans 13 Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. 2 Consequently, he who rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves. 3 For rulers hold no terror for those who do right, but for those who do wrong. Do you want to be free from fear of the one in authority? Then do what is right and he will commend you. 4 For he is God's servant to do you good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword for nothing. He is God's servant, an agent of wrath to bring punishment on the wrongdoer. 5 Therefore, it is necessary to submit to the authorities, not only because of possible punishment but also because of conscience. 6 This is also why you pay taxes, for the authorities are God's servants, who give their full time to governing. 7 Give everyone what you owe him: If you owe taxes, pay taxes; if revenue, then revenue; if respect, then respect; if honor, then honor.
Not to mock the authority even if we have the freedom of democracy we are to respect the authority.
Proverbs 1:7 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge,
but fools despise wisdom and discipline.
Church was made for sinners for we are all one.
