TRUTH FOR TODAY

Glenn E. Hawkins, Evangelist

DUTY IN SUM AND SUBSTANCE  [4]

          The fourth and final expression in 1 Peter 2:17, which sums up the sum and substance of our duty to God and man, is “Honor the King.”  Here, civil government is to be honored and respected.  Why?  Because government is ordained by God (Romans 13:1-2).  Because rulers are not a terror to good works, but to evil (Romans 13:3-4).  How?  By living in subjection to government (Romans 13:5), and by working with it in every way laudable.  [My thanks to Evangelist Frank Cox for these thoughts]

          Watch In Search of the Lord's Way , Sunday at 8:30 AM on Massillon Cable channel 22.  If you have access to the internet, please visit our website:  www.masschurchofchrist.org
