Be submissive to every human institution and authority for the sake of the Lord.
I Peter 2:13a
We are free individuals in Christ and not slaves to anyone.
But, at the same time, we are commanded to respect and honour our superiors at our workplace as they are ordained by God.
By doing so, you can silence the voice of your oppressors.
And you don’t give room for anyone to find fault in your conduct.
When you do what is pleasing in God’s sight and obey HIs word, His presence will be with you to protect you and help you find favour in the sight of your superiors.
Let’s endeavour to follow Christ’s example in everything we do, just as He submitted to the Father’s will on the cross.
God has called us to live a higher standard of living – even at our workplace.
