Words of Comfort: Slave!

A Hebrew servant (according to the Bible) who was given his freedom had the option to stay with a master he loved. If he chose to give up his freedom, his master took him to the doorpost and pierced his ear with an awl, “and he shall serve him forever” (Exodus 21:5, 6). In the same way, the sinner (upon conversion) is given freedom from sin and becomes a servant of Jesus Christ (see 1 Corinthians 7:22), to serve Him forever. He presents his body as a living sacrifice. His ear is forever open to the Door of the Savior (John 10:9) to hear His voice.
