Now Playing: Rewards...
Topic: More of God's Rewards
You Will Receive the Glory of God.
"Servants, be subject to your masters with all fear; not only to the good and gentle, but also to the froward. For this is thankworthy, if a man for conscience toward God endure grief, suffering wrongfully. For what glory is it...." I Peter 2:18-20.

You Will not Blaspheme God or His Word.
"Let as many servants as are under the yoke count their own masters worthy of all honor, that the name of God and his doctrine be not blasphemed" I Timothy 6:1.

You Will be Given Clear Direction.
"My son, keep thy father's commandment, and forsake not the law of thy mother: Bind them continually upon thine heart, and tie them about thy neck. When thou goest, it shall lead thee; when thou sleepest, it shall keep thee; and when thou awakest, it shall talk with thee" Proverbs 6:20-22.

Now Playing: Protection under authority
Topic: God's Authority
1. God is the source of all authority. see Romans 13:1-7.

2. God established a balance of power: Family, Church, and Goverment.

3. The basic functions of authority: Punish those who do evil and praise those who do well.
(I Peter 2:13-14)

4. Why every person must be under authority: For character training; for conscience's sake; for a witness and influence.

5. When to appeal to authorities: When they fail in their duty; When they go beyond their duty; When they ask you to do evil.
(check out Hebrews 13:17, I Timothy 5:1-2, and II Timothy 2:24-26)

6.Prepare your appeal.

7.Present your appeal.

8.Suffer for refusing to do evil.

9.Flee if forced to do evil.

A Bible study...
Topic: God's Authority
When the centurion asked Jesus to heal his servant,he said, "I am not worthy that thou shouldest enter under my roof... but say in a word, and my servant shall be healed. For I also am a man set under authority, having under me soldiers, and I say unto one, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it" Luke 7:6-8
Jesus marveled and said to the people, "I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel" Luke 7:9.

Why do you think that the centurion have more faith than anyone in Israel? He, himself, lived under a structure of authority and he perceived that the kingdom of God operates in the same way.
And so, he believed that a command from Jesus would be just as effective, as a personal visit.
