(Blank Subject Line)

Even when a higher authority violates God’s order, we can submit in a
godly fashion. When the apostles were arrested for preaching about
Jesus, they did not resist. However, when told to stop preaching
Jesus, they replied,

“We must obey God rather than men!” (Acts 5:29).

They appealed to a higher authority and continued to preach Jesus
openly, even though it led to persecution. In some cases, they saw God
bring miraculous deliverance. In others, God allowed martyrdom. In all
cases, they rejoiced “because they had been counted worthy of
suffering disgrace for the Name” (Acts 5:41).
