Am I a slave of Jesus or a servant?
We have lost this incredibly important concept of Jesus as Master and I am His slave. We have, in many cases, a man-centered emphasis in “the church”. Some have a man-centered theology that dominates evangelicalism, in which we talk about Jesus coming along as a kind of a buddy who loves you and wants to satisfy all your desires and give you everything you want.
But that’s not what the new testament teaches. What scripture teaches is not that you’re Master and He’s your slave; it’s that He’s Master and you’re His slave.
