From Sanctuary by David Jeremiah
Paul, a bondservant of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle, separated to the gospel of God.
When we meet people for the first time, frequently in addition to stating our name we will identify our occupation or profession. Our identity is closely linked to what we do.
Paul introduced himself in the book of Romans by stating, “Paul, a bondservant of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle, separated to the gospel of God.”
Paul saw everything in his life through the lens of his slavery to Christ. Outwardly, he wrote as a slave of Caesar, but inwardly he considered himself a bondslave to Jesus Christ. To Paul the term servant w as a title of dignity and humility. There was no greater position than to be a servant of Jehovah God.
We all would do well to remember that God did not save us to become sensations, but rather to become servants.
