Message of the Day: Christians, Submit to Government.

Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist and appointed by God.” (Romans 13:1, NKJV)

Civil government during Paul’s time were probably pagans. Believers may have been tempted not to submit to them and to claim allegiance only to Christ. Even the possibility of a persecuting state did not shake Paul’s conviction that civil government is ordained by God.

Since God is the source of all authority, civil governments exercise power by his permission. We should therefore, obey them.

The point here is not the divine right of civil rulers but of government and order, not revolution for a change in government but to oppose all lawlessness and disorder.
