Would you like to live a life without fear of authority or discipline? Do what is right. Live a life of integrity and submit to authority. This is not about learning a set of behaviors and customs that are socially acceptable and copying them. This is about letting God transform you into a new person, changing the way you think and the way you live.
So, as God daily transforms you and you grow in your faith, what will your life begin to look like? It will begin to look like integrity. It will begin to look like holiness. It will begin to look like love.
We are God’s creation and we worship Him only. Yet, He teaches us to submit and show respect to those who govern us and who are in authority over us–not out of fear but because it is the right thing to do. We are committed to living a life of integrity. We give to everyone what we owe them (including love), and we owe nothing to anyone.
