Sermon Text: Deuteronomy 16:18-17:20


  1. Submission to Authority
  2. Servant-hearted Leadership
  3. The Supreme Authority

Reflection Questions:

  1. What is the area in your life where it’s most difficult to submit to authority? Why do you think that particular area is such a challenge for you?
  2. In whatever positions of leadership the Lord has placed you, for what are you known? What’s your leadership reputation? Do people sense from you the aroma of Christ?
  3. How do you feel about the severity of the punishments in the Old Testament? Yes, we live in a different time, the last times, in the era of the New Covenant, under the grace of Christ — but our God is the same God, then and now. What does his serious treatment of sin mean for us today?
