Obey them that have the rule over you, and submit yourselves: for they watch for your souls, as they that must give account, that they may do it with joy, and not with grief: for that is unprofitable for you. Hebrews 13:17 KJV

Obedience and willing obedience to delegated authority seems to be a foreign concept to many Christians in the West; even when God delegates His authority.

The Centurian, whose servant was ill, recognized Jesus’ was under authority of God the Father as he was to Ceasar and gained his servant’s healing by a word.

Biblical profit is gained by those who esteem the gift that God has given to “watch for [their] souls” and determine to bring them joy rather than grief.

But to do good and to communicate forget not: for with such sacrifices God is well pleased. Hebrews 13:16 KJV
