7449 slavery, spiritual
Because of sin humanity is in a state of slavery. On account of the atoning work of Jesus Christ, believers can break free from slavery to sin and enter into the glorious liberty of the children of God.
Humanity is enslaved
Jesus Christ as the example of the true slave
Believers as slaves of God
Believers as slaves of righteousness
Believers as slaves of others
The image of slavery in the teaching of Jesus Christ
Mt 24:45-51 pp Lk 12:42-46 Slavery involves readiness for the Master’s return; Mt 25:14-20 pp Lk 19:12-17 Slavery involves faithfulness to the Master’s purpose; Lk 17:7-10 Slavery involves diligence for the Master’s good.
Creation is itself in slavery until Jesus Christ returns
