Slaves for Jesus


I've written before about our student who had been born a slave --- considered the property of his master, forced to work long hours with little to no pay, and subjected to physical and emotional abuse. He had no rights or freedoms, and his entire life was dictated by his master's whims. everything he had was owned by his master.


As Christians, we believe that we are slaves to Jesus. And here's the irony - slavery in Christ is a beautiful and freeing truth. When we submit our lives to Jesus, we are choosing to surrender our will, desires, and ultimately, our entire beings and belongings to Him. We recognise that He is our Master and that he owns everything about us.


In the context of our relationship with Jesus, being His slave is a position of honour and privilege. It means that we have willingly given up our autonomy in exchange for the abundant blessings and grace that He bestows upon us.


One of the greatest gifts that Jesus grants us as His slaves is healing. In the Bible, we see countless instances of Jesus healing the sick, the blind, and the brokenhearted. He has the power to restore us physically, emotionally, and spiritually. When we come to Him in faith and obedience, we can experience the miraculous healing touch of our Saviour. He sees our pain and suffering and chooses to bless us with wholeness and restoration.


The most important gift that Jesus bestows upon us as His slaves is salvation. Through His sacrifice on the cross, Jesus paid the ultimate price for our sins and offered us the gift of eternal life. As His slaves, we have the incredible privilege of receiving this precious gift of salvation. We are no longer bound by the chains of sin and death but are set free to live in the fullness of His grace and love.


It is important to remember that being slaves to Jesus is not a burden but a joy. As His beloved children, we are called to serve Him with all our hearts, minds, and souls. We find true fulfillment and purpose when we live in obedience to His will and His word. We can trust in the knowledge that He has our best interests at heart and that He always has a plan to prosper us and not to harm us.
