All of our life we have someone who is over us. There will be someone in authority. They are there to guide us and lead in the right direction. It doesn’t always happen that way, but there is authority. Did you know that God set this in motion with the covenant of Noah. God set up governments. And gave them authority to keep the peace. Today, authority is a dirty word. But it is needed more than ever. In John 2, Jesus was 12 years old and went to Jerusalem with His parents for Passover. When it was over, Joseph and Mary left for Nazareth. Thinking that Jesus was in the caravan with His cousins. Joseph and Mary found Jesus in the temple 3 days later. Jesus was doing His Father’s business. But He submitted Himself and returned to Nazareth with His earthly parents. The bible says Jesus grew in wisdom, stature and in favor with God and man. This what happens when we submit to authority.
