Christians and the Governing Authorities
Audio | Notes | Romans 13:1-7
We continue our study of the most influential, life-changing, worldview-shaping letter ever written: Romans. It is a timeless, divinely-inspired masterpiece on the joy-filled-life-as-it-should-be freedom found in Jesus alone. For eleven chapters, Paul unfolds the heights and depths of the gospel of Jesus. Then, in chapters 12-16, he turns to apply God’s mercies to our many relationships: our self conception (12:1-2), our gifts (vs. 3-8), to Jesus’ people (vs. 9-16), to our enemies (vs. 17-21), and today, to our relationship with the governing authorities (13:1-7).
