We Must Obey God Rather Than Man

TO REMEMBER:

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

TO UNDERSTAND:

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)
