“Remind them to be subject to rulers and authorities, to obey, to be ready for every good work,”
Interpretation: How can we distinguish ourselves as followers of Christ- the ultimate authority, if we cannot follow basic instruction from those over us? The world wants to portray that those that are lawless and self-governing are successful in life. But that is not the case. As Christians we should shine in simple opportunities to obey among those that are placed in authority. We obey because we love and respect our Lord.
Pray for obedience in your life, and a willingness to be governed by Jesus.
