Yeah But…

Noel Heikkinen

Romans 13:1-7

Each and every authority that we interact with is under the ultimate authority of God. Do you yield to the authorities in your life with whom you disagree? Pastor Noel Jesse Heikkinen challenges us that as Christians, our default position should not be to rebel, but rather to yield to those we disagree with. Because God is the ultimate authority, submission to human authority is an act of worship.
