Which Laws Come First

Filed under: Bible,Christ,devotion,God,Jesus — by ginrich @ 1:00 am

Acts 5:29 But Peter and the apostles answered, “We must obey God rather than men.

We are to be law-abiding citizens but sometimes there are laws in the country in which we live that conflict with the laws of God. Then we must make a choice. One example is God’s law of marriage as being between one man and one woman. There is not room for more than one of each nor is there a union between 2 of the same gender. We like to pick and choose which laws we will follow. Speed limits are regularly broken which makes us not law-abiding citizens. God says don’t judge others or gossip but we do. We must face the fact that in our human nature we are not law-abiding citizens of the earth or the heavenly kingdoms. It is only by the grace of God through the blood of Jesus that we can learn to be law-abiding through the power of God’s Holy Spirit. Let us learn to listen to His Spirit and obey both the laws of our country that don’t conflict with God’s laws and the laws of God.
