The Church and Common Authority

The Church and Common Authority

Peter continues his discussion of just how we are to be subject to those in authority over us, while at the same time living as servants of God.

Peter has already spoken to the area of high governmental authority. Now he turns to more practical matters and addresses the plight of those slaves in the Roman world who had come to follow Christ. And while there are many differences between the slaves of that day and our experiences in the workplace and the day-to-day world, the principle is the same: We are to be submissive to those in authority over us, mindful that we are servants of God and recognizing that Jesus is our example.
