Series:  ScatteredSuffering and Submission 1 Peter 2:14-25 Suffering and submission are valuable in God’s kingdom.  He uses them to accomplish His plan and develop His people.     Submission is difficult for us because rebellion is a part of our makeup. What about bad rulers?  Peter was writing to people who were living under a tyrannical governmental system.  Is civil disobedience?  The Bible illustrates resisting authority when a person is protecting the innocent or proclaiming the gospel.                As a general rule, God views disobedience toward authorities as disobedience toward Him.   Freedom in Christ does not give us a license to sin, an excuse to be selfish, or a right to be rebellious.  Freedom in Christ gives us the ability to submit.  Our submission to authority is not weakness but a tool for the Lord.  why do we submit to authority?  1.  Institutions of authority are ordained by God.
