Romans Part IV
Subjection to governing authorities
Rome was the governing authority
Ten years before NeroSlide3
Every person is to be subject to governing authorities
God established authority
No authority except from Him
Those who resist the authority – oppose God
Rules are established to bring good behavior and punish evil behavior
God’s ministers of goodSlide4
Acts 4 and 5
“Judge for yourselves whether it is right in God’s sight to obey you rather than
help speaking about what we have seen and heard.”
“We must obey God rather than men”
The apostles chose God over men and were ready to pay the consequencesSlide5
Egypt was a godless society like Rome
Midwives feared God above Pharaoh
Result: Moses was spared and became Israel’s deliverer
God honored the midwives and gave them families of their ownSlide6
But our citizenship is in heaven and we eagerly await a Savior from
, the Lord Jesus Christ.
The believer’s citizenship is in heaven
His ultimate authority is GodSlide7
Philippians and Genesis
say that being subject to the governing authority means that Christians have to do something that is sin.
God set up government. “Whoever sheds the blood of man, by man shall his blood be shed, for in the image of God has God made man.”Slide8
Owe nothing to anyone, except love
Loving one’s neighbor fulfills the Law
Love your neighbor as yourself
Love does no wrong to its neighbor Slide9
Luke 10:30-37 The one hated, became the neighbor to the man in need
Matt. 5:42 Don’t turn away from the one who wants to borrow from you
John 3:16 God loved the world, which was in need, and gave us what we neededSlide10
The Lord’s return is much nearer than when we believed
“Do this” refers to loving one’s neighbor
Love is the fulfillment of the Law
Lay aside the deeds of darkness
Put on the armor of light
Behave properly..as in the daySlide11
NOT in carousing and drunkenness
NOT in sexual promiscuity and sensuality
NOT in strife and jealousy
Put ON the Lord Jesus Christ
Make no provision for the fleshSlide12
Increase and abound in love for one another
Are YOU being alert and sober, increasing in love, not just “steady as she goes”?
