It's frustrating to be under imperfect authority. And sometimes it's more than frustrating--we suffer when someone's authority is unfair, capricious, or just plain wrong. But does that let us off the hook? Do we have to listen only to those we agree with? In Authority Issues: When It's Hard Being Told What To Do, Robert Smith of Faith Biblical Counseling explains how God calls us to submit to authority--even imperfect authority--and that, as we do so, we are following in Jesus' steps. As we redirect our trust from fallen authority figure to the gracious and loving God who is ultimately in charge of our life, we can avoid the traps of bitterness and expectation and become more like Christ.New Growth Press minibooks are frequently used by pastors and ministry leaders to help others apply biblical wisdom to specific life issues. Churches, biblical counseling ministries, and missional organizations make the minibooks available in their acrylic display cases to further discipleship and gospel-centered living.
