Be subject for the Lord's sake to every human institution, whether it be to the emperor as supreme, or to governors as sent by him to punish those who do evil and to praise those who do good. (1 Peter 2:13-14, ESV) The rules of polite company say, if you want to make friends and influence people, don't ever talk about religion and politics. Well, this Sunday, I guess I'm shooting to lose friends and destroy my influence because we are going to talk about both. In today's political environment, it is an intensely practical and confrontational time to examine this passage. But, this is where we have landed. So here we go . . . I want to encourage you to do two things before Sunday. First, take some time to slowly read 1 Peter 2. Second, take some time to pray for our political leaders of all stripes and convictions during this time.
