Submit to Arrest
Randy Emon

Law enforcement officers will occasionally confront individuals who refuse to submit to arrest.  Did you know the bible discusses how a Christian is to practice submission, too? Check this out:

  • Slaves, obey your earthly masters in everything you do. Try to please them all the time, not just when they are watching you. Serve them sincerely because of your reverent fear of the Lord.
    Work willingly at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people. Colossians 3:22-23(NLT)
  • Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. James 4:7(NIV)
  • Likewise you younger people, submit yourselves to your elders. Yes, all of you be submissive to one another, and be clothed with humility, for “God resists the proud, But gives grace to the humble.” 1 Peter 5:5(NKJV)
  • Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ. Ephesians 5:21(NIV)
  • Obey your spiritual leaders, and do what they say. Their work is to watch over your souls, and they are accountable to God. Give them reason to do this with joy and not with sorrow. That would certainly not be for your benefit. Hebrews 13:17(NLT)
  • Everyone must submit to governing authorities. For all authority comes from God, and those in positions of authority have been placed there by God. Romans 13:1(NLT)
  • Slaves, obey your earthly masters with deep respect and fear. Serve them sincerely as you would serve Christ. Ephesians 6:5(NLT)
  • “Now therefore, fear the Lord, serve Him in sincerity and in truth, and put away the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the River and in Egypt. Serve the Lord! And if it seems evil to you to serve the Lord, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” Joshua 24:14-15(NKJV)
