February 19, 1 Peter 2:9-25 Be peculiar
I've always liked the King James version of this text, ye are a peculiar people. There aren't too many people more peculiar than I am, but the meaning of words evolve. We're a special people, bought with a great price and the pagans around us should see something different in us. Closing the chapter, submit to authority and honor the emperor. I don't care who anyone voted for, the process is done and we live with our choices until the next cycle. But in all of the demonstrations and protests is there anyone obeying this? We believe that all governments and authority comes from God, so accept that this current administration only serves by His will. Unless we are commanded to specifically violate the laws of God, submit and honor the position.
