Do not try to rebel against your leaders like your parents or anything else. BE COOPERATIVE putting up a fight always causes evil. Pay what you owe not the bare minimum amount! Love everyone. As Paul is saying that pretty much sums up the law. Love now not later the time is near you never know when so always be ready. live with Christ in you let him shine brightly through you. Do not even think about evil things!
That authority has been placed in that position by God and to go against it is like going against God. Its kind of like a cop--- says they don't strike fear in those that are doing right, but those doing wrong. If your not doing anything wrong like speeding and you pass a cop there is no reason to fear. You need to obey not because its right always but because it keeps a clear conscience and you know that when your conscience is clear you feel no guilt or shame. The greatest thing we can do is... LOVE. we don't owe anything to anyone but we are called to love everyone and that is one thing that doesn't cost anything just takes some effort. When in Love you do no wrong if you attempt to love it cant be wrong- sometimes may not always be the right way but if one looks at the heart it can never be wrong. If we all only loved we would have no problems- everything boils down to a couple things people want to be loved and protected. We must live in the right by putting on the shining armor and not associate and take part in the wild things of this world ( Romans 12:1-2) Instead close your self with the presence of the Lord
My question is how can we or how do we clothe ourselves int eh presence of the Lord?
Clothe yourself in Christ. This means have faith and trust in the Lord. Let the Lords light shine through you in all things you do. Respect the law. Love everyone like Tanner said-- Paul said it sums up the law. We are to serve the Lord from love and let others see the light of the gospel.
