5Servants, be obedient to them that are your masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in singleness of your heart, as unto Christ; 6Not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but as the servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart; 7With good will doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men: 8Knowing that whatsoever good thing any man doeth, the same shall he receive of the Lord, whether he be bond or free.
5 Siervos, obedeced a vuestros amos en la tierra, con temor y temblor, con la sinceridad de vuestro corazón, como a Cristo; 6 no para ser vistos, como los que quieren agradar a los hombres, sino como siervos de Cristo, haciendo de corazón la voluntad de Dios. 7 Servid de buena voluntad, como al Señor y no a los hombres, 8 sabiendo que cualquier cosa buena que cada uno haga, esto recibirá del Señor, sea siervo o sea libre.
No matter if what are employers or government officials are saying, whether we think wrong or right, we need to obey their laws. It is they that will have to answer to God if they are wrong. So many Christians think it is ok to break laws if they don’t seem to line up to God’s word. The Bible teaches us differently here. Let God’s Spirit guide you and you will know the truth.
