The Slave Most Free

Philippians 1:1

From Paul and Timothy, slaves of King Jesus…

I’ve been a slave to many things…

To people

To ways of thinking

To experiences

To certain foods

It sucks.

It’s binding, holding you back from your full potential.

But to be a slave of Christ Jesus…

To be a slave to the One who loved me to the point of giving himself for me.

He gave his entire self for you.

This is Someone worthy of giving yourself to.

One who is a “slave of Christ” is truly free from sin. If he is truly a slave of Christ, he is not a slave in any other realm, since then he would not be a slave of Christ but only half so.

~John Chrysostom
