The Faithful Servant and the Evil Servant — 3 Comments

  1. something to think about –
    are christians servants or slaves?
    the greek word used in the NT is “doulos”
    servants are paid workers, slaves are purchased
    are we not purchased at a price?

    • I choose to look at ourselves as being “redeemed” by the heavy price that Jesus had paid for us on the Cross.  Perhaps you may like to consider Matthew 20:25-28 which says: But Jesus called them to him and said, “You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their great ones exercise authority over them.  It shall not be so among you. But whoever would be great among you must be your servant, and whoever would be first among you must be your slave, even as the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”  May God bless you.

    • Hi Michael,
      Refering to your question, may I also add the following. May you be blessed.  1Cor7:21-24 reads: Were you a slave when called? Do not be concerned about it. (But if you can gain your freedom, avail yourself of the opportunity.) For he who was called in the Lord as a slave is a freed man of the Lord. Likewise he who was free when called is a slave of Christ.  You were bought with a price; do not become slaves of men. So, brothers, in whatever condition each was called, there let him remain with God.
