Going Deeper into Respect: Week 4/Day 2

Authority

Reflection Thoughts:

The Greek translated as kingdom has to do with royal power, kingship dominion, rule. Not to be confused with an actual kingdom but rather the right or authority to rule over a kingdom (Enhanced Strong’s Lexicon).

In your mind, what does it look like for God’s Kingdom to come?

What does His Kingdom coming look like when you consider respecting others?

What authority are you most likely to struggle with? Why?

What happens in you when you don’t agree with the authority you are under?

What about when the authority figure over you is an unbeliever or is acting ungodly?

Day 2:

Read Lamentations 3:37-39

What does this passage tell us about God’s authority?

Consider all that happens in the world, both good and bad. How do you feel about God authorizing it all?

Read Romans 8:28

Do you know? have confidence in? God’s power to work ALL things for good?

What would it take for you to wholly trust and respect His authority?
