The Authorities Are God’s Servants

The authorities are God’s servants, sent for your good. But if you are doing wrong, of course you should be afraid, for they have the power to punish you. They are God’s servants, sent for the very purpose of punishing those who do what is wrong. — Romans 13:4

그는 하나님의 사자가 되어 네게 선을 이루는 자니라 그러나 네가 악을 행하거든 두려워하라 그가 공연히 칼을 가지지 아니하였으니 곧 하나님의 사자가 되어 악을 행하는 자에게 진노하심을 위하여 보응하는 자니라 — 로마서 13:4

pues está al servicio de Dios para tu bien. Pero, si haces lo malo, entonces debes tener miedo. No en vano lleva la espada, pues está al servicio de Dios para impartir justicia y castigar al malhechor. — Romanos 13:4

  1. Interesting quote for todays’ times. Not sure how many authorities / leaders are out there to do good as opposed to selfish gain.
