“For though I be free from all men, yet have I made myself servant unto all, that I might gain the more.” – 1 Corinthians 9:19
There are three reasons for obedience. A slave obeys because he has to. An employee obeys because he needs to. But a loving son obeys because he wants to.
So many of us live like slaves, when Jesus has said, “Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of My Father I have made known unto you” (John 15:15).
I don’t work for my salvation—that work has been done by my Lord. But I will work like any slave for the love of God. What about you?
