Paul a bondservant of Christ, called to be an apostle, separated to the gospel of God.” Romans 1:1.

Simon Peter, a bondservant and apostle of Jesus Christ.” 2 Peter 1:1.

“Jude, a bondservant of Jesus Christ, and brother of James. “ Jude 1:1.

James, a bondservant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ.” James 1:1.

“Epaphras, who is one of you, a bondservant of Christ, greets you, always laboring fervently for you in prayers, that you may stand perfect and complete in all the will of God.” Col. 4:12.

Christ is our Master. He it is who has set us free from the bondage and dominion of sin and Satan. And who has brought us into His kingdom of light, peace and righteousness.

“Now that you have been set free from sin and have become slaves to God, the benefit you reap leads to holiness, and the result is eternal life” (Romans 6:22).

As our Master, He did not conquer us against our own will, but in and by love, mercy and grace He redeemed us. We are His bondslaves, freely yielding our will, our rights and submitting to His Lordship, not by coercion or compulsion.

A bondslave of Christ is one who lives to do the will of His Lord. His love and deep appreciation for the Master makes him or her totally sold out and committed to Him; he/she pledges and gives Him total allegiance, total faithfulness.

A bondslave of Christ is one who does not seek his/her own glory. He does not seek fame, the praise and applause of men, he is not a men pleaser. He seeks only to receive His Master’s commendation: “Well done, good and faithful servant; you have been faithful over a few things, l will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your Lord.”. Matt. 25:21.

For this reason we see a bondslave of Christ submitting to her husband as the church submits to Christ. We see a bondslave of Christ loving his wife even as Christ loves His church. We see a bondslave of Christ serving his Master humbly and loyally, seeking no earthly rewards.

We are free bondslavess who have willingly bounded ourselves to our Master. If anyone chooses to walk away the Master does not tie us down against our will. He will mourn for us because He knows what will be our fate if we leave and do not return, but He never holds us bond to Him against our will. We are free to go and free to stay.

To be bond to Christ forever – this is the truest freedom.
