Since...you have been raised with Christ…set your hearts on things above, where Christ is...

In EVERYTHING God works


We need to understand one word fully…Authority


Personal authority


Family authority


Colossians 3.18-20 NIV

Wives, submit yourselves to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord. Husbands, love your wives and do not be harsh with them. Children, obey your parents in everything, for this pleases the Lord.


Church authority


Hebrews 13.17 ESV

Obey your (Spiritual) leaders and submit to them, for they are keeping watch over your souls, as those who will have to give an account. Let them do this with joy and not with groaning, for that would be of no advantage to you.


Vocational Authority


Ephesians 6.5-6 WEB

...obey your boss. Respect him with all your heart and try to please him as you would Christ. Obey not only when he is looking at you, as if you were pleasing a man. But obey as the servants of Christ, and do with all your heart what God wants you to do.


Local Authority


Titus 3.1-1 CEV

Remind your people to obey the...authorities and not to be rebellious. They must always be ready to do something helpful and not say cruel things or argue. They should be gentle and kind to everyone.


Government authority


Romans 13.1

Every person should obey the government in power.


Romans 13.1-2 GW

No government would exist if it hadn’t been established by God. The governments which exist have been put in place by God. 2 Therefore, whoever resists the government opposes what God has established. Those who resist will bring punishment on themselves.


1 Timothy 2:1–5 NLT

...pray for all people. Ask God to help them; intercede on their behalf, and give thanks for them. 2 Pray this way for...all who are in authority so that we can live peaceful and quiet lives marked by godliness and dignity. 3 This is good and pleases God our Savior


Jeremiah 29.7

...seek the peace and prosperity of the city to which I have carried you into exile. Pray to the LORD for it, because if it prospers, you too will prosper.


Jeremiah 29:4–7,11 NLT

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.


Romans 16.17-18 NKJ

Now I urge you...note those who cause divisions and offenses...and avoid them. For those who are such do not serve our Lord Jesus Christ...


‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭20:3‬ ‭NIV‬‬

“It is to one’s honor to avoid strife, but every fool is quick to quarrel.”


Everything without arguing 


Philippians 2.14-15 GW

15Then you will be blameless and innocent. You will be God's children without any faults among people who are crooked and corrupt. You will shine like stars among them in the world…


Unity is our duty and priority

In EVERYTHING God works (Even through evil)

Respect yourself and all other authority

Do it all Without arguing or complaining!


Ephesians 2:14 ESV

For he himself is our peace, who has made us both one and has broken down in his flesh the dividing wall of hostility
