January 17

As Christians, we have a duty to follow the mandates set by the Bible, and handle our disagreements and concerns with one another His way. He also expects us to obey the authority of those set above us, but they must also treat their subordinates fairly. The order God has set tends to get some people upset. I’m not going to lie, I like to be in charge, but I’m also married, and my husband is head of the house. Ladies, if you don’t want to submit to a man's authority over you, then don’t get married! The order of submission helps us to know who has the last word in a disagreement among ourselves as believers. This is God ordained. If you don’t follow it, then you are out of line, and are disobeying God. We should also note that if you are treated badly, then you will be paid back for the wrong committed against you. In all we do, we are serving Jesus, do everything as unto Him. Don’t shoot the messenger, the order is found throughout the Bible, but today, I’m in Colossians 3:18-25

Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ. Colossians 3:23-24
