When Government Is Flawed (Part 2)
Topic: Government Verse: Ecclesiastes 8:3–8:9
Pastor Art Azurdia preaching part 19 of the series, "In Search Of Meaning" from Ecclesiastes 8:3-9.
Here in part two of "When Government Is Flawed" we finish answering the question. "How do you live under a government that is marred by the effects of the fall?" In this text, we learn that we must respect the power that is delegated and anticipate the coming judgment that is inevitable. It is wise to remember that any power possessed by a leader or government is only and always providentially delegated by God. However, it is a real authority and needs to be respected because your security is immediately tied to this sovereignty. It is also wise to accept that God will require an accounting of the people who have abused their power, a just penalty will be enacted. It is remembering this coming judgment that can sustain you when you have to submit to ungodly leaders.
