Sermon of the Week (9/14 - 9/20, 2014) Nathan Millican on 1 Peter 2. "Citizenship evangelism."

Nathan Millican is pastor of Oak Park Baptist in Jeffersonville, IN. The sermon is from 8/31/14 on 1 Peter 2:13-17. This is a great sermon on submission to authorities, namely the government. It is a reminder to Christians that just because you have the freedom to complain doesn't mean you should, and doesn't mean you should be disrespectful in your criticism of government officials. Stirring up vitriol on Facebook is not God-honoring, even if the criticism is valid and the cause just. Obeying the laws of the nation is obeying God. Nathan uses the phrase "citizenship evangelism" to describe how we're to be witnesses through the way we respect the authorities and institutions of our country, no matter which country it may be. Enjoy.
