"Masters On Earth"
“Masters On Earth”
The Spirit is instructing us through the letter written to the church at Ephesus.
We are learning how to relate to one another.
We have received insight related to wives, husbands, children and fathers.
Slaves, in all things obey those who are your masters on earth, not with external service, as those who merely please men, but with sincerity of heart, fearing the Lord.
Most will immediately, with defense, declare that they are not slaves.
Such is not true.
Remember, there is no greater slave than he who thinks he is free.
Most “free” western societies today endure far greater “slavery” than previous times of slavery, feudalism and indentured servitude.
Regardless, slave/employees? are instructed.
We are to obey the master/the boss.
We are not to obey with just external service...not for show, having a heart of resentment and rebellion. Not just for the pleasing of men.
We are to obey with sincerity of heart.
Fear of the Lord.
From honor, awe and respect of the Lord we are to obey.
Obeying pleases the Lord.
There is more...later…
For today, in all things obey those who are your masters on earth...
