Because of Love! Something To Think About!

In Exodus 21 I’ve learned of a law regarding slaves. A Hebrew slaved served his master for 6 years and would be set free on the 7th. During that time if he had taken a wife and they had children, the master would free him but not his family!

However, the slave could choose to stay if he loved his family and his master. Then the master would back him up to a door post and bore his ear with an awl which would identify him as a voluntary slave for the rest of his life.

Although he could have gone out free, he stayed because of love. Our Lord Jesus came down to this earth in the form of a little baby, and was made in the likeness of a servant. He died on the cross for you and me so that we could have a relationship with Him. He became a slave because He loves us!

This was a choice He made! Now, you must make a choice daily to serve and obey Him!
