Fifth Command: Honoring Authority in an Age of Disrespect

On Sunday we move from the 1st Table of the Law (four commands focused on ‘Loving God’) to the 2nd Table (six commands focused on ‘Loving our neighbor’ well.)  This Sunday, is Commandment Five: Honor your father and mother so that you may live long in the land God has given.  

We will look at the positive and negative aspects to the command as well as the narrow and broad scope: Honoring Authority in an Age of Disrespect.

In an age of family breakdown, abuse of authority, and messed up relationships between parent and child, parent to parent, and a general questioning of anyone in a position of authority, how ought we to honor and obey this command?  Lets dive in on Sunday.

Congratulations to Chase and Ethan Rietema as they make their profession of faith and experience their baptism.  We rejoice with their commitment of faith and public stance for Jesus.  Come and celebrate with us this coming Sunday!

For the Kingdom of God,

Pastor Mark
