We Must Obey God Rather Than Man


The king of Egypt said to the Hebrew midwives …, “When you are helping the Hebrew women during childbirth …, if you see that the baby is a boy, kill him; but if it is a girl, let her live.” The midwives, however, feared God & did not do what the king of Egypt had told them to do; they let the boys live. Then the king of Egypt summoned the midwives & asked them, “Why have you done this? Why have you let the boys live?” The midwives answered Pharaoh, “Hebrew women are not like Egyptian women; they are vigorous & give birth before the midwives arrive.” So God was kind to the midwives & the people increased & became even more numerous. And because the midwives feared God, He gave them families of their own.

📖 – Exodus 1:15-21


Authorities, rules & regulations need to be obeyed but not at the cost of disobeying GOD or His Word! Why obey God?

Jesus went about doing good but the Pharisees & religious leaders went about holding the law to trap Him., not knowing that they were trying to hinder Him from doing His Heavenly Father’s will & His passionate service to mankind!

Peter & the other apostles replied: “We must obey God rather than man!” (Acts 5:29)
