Acts 5:27-32

There is much to be said in the Bible about submission. The Apostle Paul tells us to submit to one another out of reverence for Christ. Jesus submitted to the Father’s will when He gave His life for us. We are also told to submit to those in authority.

But in the this passage we are reminded that there are times when submission is impossible. It is impossible for the Christ follower when we are asked to give up our allegiance to Christ to anyone else. It is impossible for us to be silent about a message that is the reason for our hope.

When is the last time you had to make a decision–will it be the will of man or the will of God? Will I deny who I follow for an easier way? I’m not talking about being obnoxious. I’m simply talking about being someone who follows Jesus as Lord.
