In uncertain times, it can be difficult to support authority. God’s word tells us to support and pray for authority. We can do this knowing that it is ultimately God that has all authority.
If you are military you want to protect your Commander. If you understand home life, then you know that one of the greatest commodities is Mom, better protect Mom! Yes, we protect Dad too. If you are a business person you protect your CEO. If you are into football, your greatest asset is your franchise quarterback. If you are a church you want to protect ...your Pastor! I don’t say that because I am the pastor - I say that for every church. I don’t think you want me on my back but rather leading us all to win in the Lord and leading you to cross over into the promises of God! Hebrews 13:17 says, “Obey your leaders and submit to them, for they are keeping watch over your souls, as those who will have to give an account. Let them do this with joy and not with groaning, for that would be of no advantage to you.” Here is the thing about parents, husbands, bosses and pastors… there is a higher accountability that goes with the position. Please support and pray for anyone in position of authority and then trust God to ultimately lead your authority. Pray for your pastor!
