The Lord, writing through Paul, speaks to the Body as to how we are to live out our faith - together and in the world
He has spoken to…
Now, read this…He is speaking to slaves!!!
be obedient to those who are your masters according to the flesh,
with fear and trembling,
in the sincerity of your heart,
as to Christ;
not by way of eye-service, as men-pleasers,
but as slaves of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart.
With good will render service, as to the Lord, and not to men,
knowing that whatever good thing each one does,
this he will receive back from the Lord,
whether slave or free.
I want us to see one truth today.
The Body of Christ is diverse.
It consist of all stations of life.
Some are rich.
Some are poor.
Some are free.
Some are slaves.
All are equal in the eyes of God as to salvation.
Think on that.
When they gathered together as the Body one was not “above” the other.
