[The Glory Unveiled]
Live as free people, but do not use your freedom as a cover-up for evil; live as God’s slaves. ( 1 Peter 2:16 )
God so love humanity, that He sent His only begotten son to pay the penalty for our wrong. This act gives us the opportunity to return to the family of God (see John 1:12). Though we are given the privilege of sonship when we believe in Christ and as result we are free, God does not force us to comply with His ways and plans for us. He gives us the freedom to choose what to do with the freedom we have, whether good or bad. But if we love God as much as we profess, we need to become slaves of God. And this not by coercion but by our free will. We hear comments like “In Christ, I am free to do whatever I want to do”. That is true, the apostle Paul said he is free to do all things but not all things are beneficial to him. And so he will not be brought under the power of any. He chose to become the bond servant of Christ as a pledge of allegiance to God. Let us live as slaves of God so that we can express the life of God.
