[Open your Bible to the Scripture, or open the Scripture online by clicking the above link.]

Jesus began receiving confrontations from the authorities, as they plotted to kill Him. The sins in their hearts were revealed by their questions.

When Jesus affirmed that He was the Messiah the religious leaders became even more upset. They determined to trap Him.

It is often forgotten, God influences the establishment of human government for our good. Knowing this, do we readily respect the officials and obey the law? Do we pray for our elected leadership to receive guidance and to maintain integrity and morality?

Father God, You work all things for our good and Your glory, even the business of government. Ultimately, I choose to come under Your authority, therefore, I will respect, pray for, and encourage the governing bodies You have established.
