Inauguration Day 2021

January 20, 2021

It’s another Inauguration Day in the USA.

As always, in the words of the end of Ezekiel 33:10, “How then shall we live?”

Part of the answer comes in the second part of our Bibles, 1st Peter 2:17 to be exact, which in The Message version says, Respect the government.

Other versions say Honor the emperor. 

Scotty Smith, real life friend from another denomination, points out simply but cogently, “In America, we have a president, not an emperor.” Take a moment today and read the rest of 1st Peter 2:17 for some context.

Apply as needed, and I’m looking forward to seeing you back here tomorrow.
