This post is a response to a religious bible study teacher, saying folks should substitute bondservant, wherever in the bible with slave, if you believe Jesus is your Lord? – Seriously!
No – thanks.
Don’t know about you? But – I will never be a slave of God. I reject it in Jesus name. There is nothing in the bible that tells me, that’s my portion. Amen. I am a heir, a son of God – redeemed by the precious blood of Jesus. Amen ::
And, yes I’m a good servant to his callings, and fellow human beings; out of an abundance of love – shared in good faith.
I’m fearfully and wonderfully made. I am head and not tail. He has called me Loved* and called me blessed. He knows the strands of my hair :: How then, can I be called slave, or call myself; slave. Wrong! ::
Romans 8 – 17 & 21 ::
17, Now if we are children, then we are heirs–heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory.
21, that the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the freedom and glory of the children of God
