Romans 13:1-7. Paul shows us that the Gospel transforms our relationship as a citizen of the state. We see that for a Christian, while the ultimate allegiance is as a citizen in the Kingdom of God, it leads a Christian to submit to the state in matters that don't contradict our allegiance to God. Ultimately, this takes wisdom and discernment, but in this passage Paul shows a Christian: Why to Submit? When not to submit? How to submit?  Resources- Moo, commentary on Romans, Romans 8-16 For You, Keller, ESV Study bible.
