God Explains Marriage, Part 2 (Ephesians 5:22-24)

Wednesday, March 5th, 2014

We start to look more closely at the specific commands in Ephesians 5-22-33. Since the passage begins with the wives, we do the same.

First we look at the statement in v.21 which says “submitting to one another,” and how the six individual roles are commanded to carry that concept out as it relates to their specific relationships.

Second we examine why the wives are commanded before the husbands. We discover that this pattern is not limited to the wives. A very interesting observation surfaces.

Yielded Followership #22: Submitting to Government Authorities – Titus, Peter, & Daniel

Tuesday, September 29th, 2009

We examine two more New Testament passages where believers are commanded to yield to government authorities (Titus 3:1-8 and 1 Peter 2:9-17). Yielding to government authorities is a Christian discipline!

We also look at three very vivid examples in the Book of Daniel of what it looks like to disobey government authorities in specific areas (because of the commands of God) while still honoring them and being willing to suffer for it (by committing our fate to the Lord).
