Free From Fear – Romans 13:1-7

Free from fear Romans 13:1-7

Do you want to be free from fear of the one in authority?


Civil obedience (doing what is right)– two respects:

  • Recognition of governing authorities – 13:1-4

Subject to the governing authorities.

God’s design for the common good


  • Recognition of God’s authority – 13:5-7

Subject to authorities for the sake of conscience

God’s design for the conscientious good


Our response: be subject for the Lord’s sake – 1 Peter 2:13
