Free To Worship In Christ

πŸ’– You’ve been freed to worship! β˜ΊοΈπŸ’ƒπŸ™ŒΒ 

πŸ“– Colossians 3:23-24 Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.Β 

🩸 As the Biblical feast of Pesach (Passover) begins today and goes through to next Sunday, we are reminded of the deliverance of the Jewish people from the land of Egypt where they had served as slaves. 🩸 

πŸ’– The word for slaves in Hebrew is “avadim”, which, interestingly, is also the same word for “servants.”Β πŸ’– Pesach recalls to us our own personal deliverance from the slavery of sin — and the amazing joy and privilege of being free to be servants of the Living God who redeemed us. 🩸 

πŸ’– The same root letters which form the words for “slave” and “servant” also give us the word “avodah”, the Hebrew word for “work”, which is also a word that means “WORSHIP”!Β 

πŸ•Š To be a freed SLAVE of our God is to be a devoted SERVANT whose WORK is WORSHIP. πŸ™ŒΒ So, “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.” πŸ€ŽπŸ•ŠπŸ€Ž
