“Submit yourselves for the Lord’s sake to every authority instituted among men…” There have been many sermons about submission. They often focus upon who submits to whom. Peter’s context of this discussion is about how submission is a witness to Christ and a different way of life in the believer. What authority is easy for me to submit to? Where do I find submission difficult? – Help me Holy Spirit, to concern myself more with the why of submission (the witness to a life in Christ), than the struggles I have with the authorities in my life. Amen.
