Live as servants of God

on August 31, 2013

Tonight I came across a verse in the book of first Peter that made me stop and think about how I’m living my life. 1 Peter 2:16 says, “Live as free men, but do not use your freedom as a cover up for evil; live as servants of God.”

Wow. What a humbling moment as I sat reflecting upon my life.   Live as servants of God. “Of” is a word that oftentimes means “from” or “in.” Live as servants of God. Live as servants from God. Live as servants in God.

Jesus says it Himself: “You cannot serve two masters.”

Who do you serve? Or, to put it another way, what are you a servant of? Where does your identity come from?
