Slave or Bond Servant
Our society has a strong aversion to the idea of slavery due too the belief that people have rights. Ironicly many Christians treat their religion like either a job, or slavery. We sometimes act like God is a slave master with a whip who demands control of every aspect of our lives. But there is a type of slavery Paul talks about that is joyous. He talks about being a bond servant to Christ. A person who chooses slavery out of love for their master. God has givin us a choice, yet we believe we have none. We should become slaves to God purely out of love for him.
