While God’s Word tells us to honor our government leaders, it is also clear that God alone is worthy of our fear and reverence. The One who created all things and to whom we must give an account as our just Judge is not to be treated lightly. In this message from Peter 2:13–17, David Platt urges to hear the repeated refrain of Scripture, “Fear God!” For followers of Christ, this fear gives us confidence in the face of every earthly fear that we might have. It is God, not worldly leaders and governments, who is sovereign over our lives.
