Romans 13:1-5 (Submitting to Authority)
Luke 7:1-9 (The Centurion understood the nature of authority)
Many like the idea of being in authority, telling other people what to do. Those same people who desire authority might not like the idea of being under authority, being told what to do. Yet the two are related. You cannot be “in authority” unless you are first “under authority.” Jesus spoke with authority because he was under the authority of his Father in heaven. Jesus spoke the Word of God.
