“Ye are bought with a price; be not ye the servants of men.” I Corinthians 7:23
As a Christian, you have been redeemed (saved) from the death penalty. The penalty for sin was death, and your redemption was paid for with the blood of Jesus on the cross. It was a high price to pay. The saving grace of God is FREE, but it is not CHEAP! You have been bought with a high price.
God’s purchase results in your SERVANT-HOOD. However, you should remember your servant hood is unto GOD and not man. As a servant, you have given up your own “rights” and rest solely upon the will of your Master. While others are “fighting for their rights,” you can rest easy in the will of your Father and Master, because you believe He knows best.
“And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. ” (Romans 8:28) You are called to GOD’S PURPOSE and must die to your own purposes. As a child of God, you have given up your rights on “death row.” Bail has been paid by God Himself, and now you are obliged to serve and obey Him. Here is the best part… He MAKES all things work together for GOOD. God is a good God, a loving Father, and a caring Master. You can rest easy in God’s purpose.
PRAY: “Dear Father, I thank You for Your Son’s obedience to the cross which sealed my salvation. I give up my rights for the sake of serving You and ask that Your divine purpose be revealed to me. In Jesus’ Name, amen.”
