“O Lord, I am your servant; yes, I am your servant, born into your household; you have freed me from my chains.”
Psalms 116:16 NLT
How can you be a servant and free at the same time?
If you read the entire Psalm, you will find that the author spends most of his time describing how God listens and cares for him.
The natural response to someone who has done much for one is to do much in return.
How much more true is that for God? He has provided our very lives and every bit of grace and mercy throughout out our lives.
To Him who has given us everything, it is good to give everything we have to offer including our heart of grateful service.
We know that our salvation does not come from the acts of service we perform. But our gratitude for His grace and mercy should inspire us to freely do those same acts of service.
Do you do things for God out of obligation, guilt, or gratitude?
Do you realize the freedom that you have in salvation?
