We meditate on how the Christian should react to government. We see that it is something that God has granted us to keep society in order and we are to be subject to it as a minister of God for our good. However, governments do not always follow the Law of God, so we must know how to respond Biblically in these situations. The Bible says that we are to obey God first before man. Therefore, when our government tells us to do something that they do not have authority to do by Scripture or something that breaks God’s Law, we are not to do it. Though the government may punish us for this, God will reward our obedience to Him.
