Work Through Authority

S. O. A. P.

Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!


Romans 13:5

Therefore, it is necessary to submit to the authorities, not only because of possible punishment but also as a matter of conscience.


From the first verse of this chapter, Paul lays down the natural response for a Christian living in any country. He states that God has granted ALL authority and that should we rebel, we are rebelling against the Lord who placed them there. He says it’s not only the right thing to do; it’s what our conscience mandates we do.


This is difficult for some “Followers Of Christ” to swallow. Remember that Jesus and all of the major Christian leaders of the New Testament were living and serving under legal regimes that detested the Christian faith. Because Rome ruled the world at that time, they were all under Roman rule. Then they had come from Jewish faith and tradition to form this new Christian fellowship of believers. So they were not free from people disagreeing with them. Paul says authority is from the Lord and to obey it. But the only way they could establish the Christian faith was as quiet as they knew how. They had to “Work Through Authority.” They were not to bypass, rebel, or deceive authority. They were to “Work Through Authority.” Today the Christian way has not changed. We must “Work Through Authority.”


Dear Jesus,

Help me always “Work Through Authority” as I endeavor to pursue your mission here on earth. I want to be a good follower of Jesus and a good citizen as well. I need your help. Amen

The Ward Law Group

The Ward Law Group was founded by attorneys Gregory Ward and Jany Martinez-Ward with a goal to contribute to the Hispanic community’s legal needs after suffering a car accident. Their passion shows in their work as they ensure that each case settles for the maximum compensation possible, and in supporting represented victims as they recover from physical injuries and financial losses.

As an experienced attorney who once represented insurance companies, Gregory Ward has a deep understanding of how they operate and what aspects can create or diminish the value of the cases he represents. This knowledge has led him to become a gifted negotiator and litigator defending the rights of his clients residing in the Miami Lakes, Miami, Orlando, and Kissimmee areas.
