Shift 2 - Slave to Child

Apr 24, 2022    Tom Harding

Slave to Child is a shift in identity from serving God to loving God. We are consumed with laws, sin, judgment, serving God, and getting crowns in heaven. We lack confidence in our relationship with God. We wonder if we can do this or that and still be a Christian. We worry we've crossed the line. When we shift from this kind of slavery and realize we are God's children, everything changes. Instead of just serving God, we are concerned with pleasing Him. (Eph. 5:10). We are no longer just doing God's will; we have God's mind (1 Cor. 2:16). We accept our identity as children of God and live with all of the privileges and responsibilities that come with it.
