If You Can Believe

Are you sympathetic to the concerns that other people have about the state of the world?
state of the world
 
Do you have colleagues or clients who discuss hot issues in the news? 
Are you affected at all by the political climate? 
Do you find yourself commenting on the right and wrong of the current political situations?
enlighten me
 
If so, do these subjects remind you to hope and pray for our Creator and King’s Kingdom to come?
one prayer
 
Let’s revisit.
 
1
 
Let every soul be subject to the sovereign authorities.
For there is no power which is not from God;
and those who are in authority are ordained by God.
 
2
 
Whoever therefore resists the civil authority, resists the command of God;
and they who resist shall receive judgment to themselves.
government of the people
 
Hmm…
 
3
 
For judges are not a menace to good works, but to evil.
Now if you wish not to be afraid of authority, then do good, and you will be praised for it.
 
4
 
For the ruler is the minister of God to you for good.
But if you do that which is wrong, be afraid;
for he is not girded with the sword in vain;
for he is the minister of God, and an avenger of wrath upon those who commit crime.
 
5
 
Wherefore, we must be obedient, not only in fear of wrath, but also for our conscience sake.
obedience
 
 
6
 
For, for this reason you pay head tax also; 
for they are ministers of God who are in charge of these things.
 
7
 
Render therefore, to every one as is due to him, 
head tax to him who is in charge of head tax, duty to him who is in charge of taxes;
reverence to whom reverence is due, and honor to whom honor is due.
 
8
 
Owe no man anything, but love one another;
for he who loves his neighbor has fulfilled the law,
 
9
 
Which says, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not commit adultery, 
Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not covet;
and if there is any other commandment, 
it is fulfilled in this saying, namely, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.
 
10
 
Love does not work evil to his neighbor, because love is the fulfillment of the law.
 
11
 
Know this also, that now is the time and the hour that we should awake from our sleep, 
for now our salvation is nearer than when we believed.
ask
 
 
12
 
The night is far spent, the day is at hand;
let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light.
 
13
 
Let us walk decently, as in the daylight;
not in clamor and drunkenness, not in the practice of immorality, not in envy and strife.
 
14
 
But clothe yourselves with our Lord Jesus Christ, and disregard the lusts of the flesh. 
(Romans 13, Lamsa Bible version online)
faith
 
They know. They hear.
if you believe
 
Be obedient and patient.
 
Believe in an amazing future!
