When Paul began his letter to the church in Rome he called himself a "bondslave" to Christ. Did you ever wonder what that phrase meant? Bondslave? Voluntary slave? One who places himself in total submission to another... voluntarily and for love? That's exactly how Exodus 21 describes him.
So, what is your relationship to Jesus?
Are you a servant of His... you know, where you work 9 to 5 with weekends off? Or, are you His slave... where every action, thought and possession of yours belongs to your Master, the One who bought you for Himself for a great price?
