1. Source of Authority - All authority comes from God - ordained (purposed).
2. Service of Authority - All authority are ministers for God - two primary functions: praise good, punish evil.
3. Submission to Authority - Submission means supporting goals and obeying guidelines. Submission is the proper balance of obedience and appeal. Submit to avoid punishment and to amplify testimony.
Do I accept authority in my life as the minister of God? Am I supportive of the goals of my authority? Do I obey the instructions of authority? Have I learned how to make a proper appeal?
Walk with the Lord and submit to His authorities!!!
