A reason to be subject to the government

Paul showed various reasons why Christians should subject themselves to the government, including this, 

“Therefore you must be subject, not only because of wrath but also for conscience’ sake” (Romans 13:5).

If we resist the government, we may experience its wrath, but he also said that we should subject ourselves to the government for our own conscience’ sake, so that we can say we have done whatever God said to do.
