secession – in but not of

English: Head-piece to the second epistle of P...

Many states now have petitions to secede from the union on the White House website.  I, as a believer in Christ who seeks to follow Him, see that I must secede my trust in government – state, or nation.  If everything created is going to burn up on the last Day, why depend on any of it?  As CB once told me, “Put your hope in God!”

But once more I urge us all to pray for the rulers, my personal prayer is that they, the rulers, would have wisdom and feel secure and for all of us to live in peace and quiet according to the word in 1 Timothy 2: 1-4:  I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone— for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness .  This is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all men to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth.
