Freely Given

“Slaves, be obedient to your human masters with fear and trembling, in sincerity of heart, as to Christ, not only when being watched, as currying favor, but as slaves of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart, willingly serving the Lord and not men, knowing that each will be requited from the Lord for whatever good he does, whether he is slave or free.”
(Ephesians 6:5-8)

Freedom freely given
to the Lord saves
from servitude.
What once was burden
is done in love;
all toil here below
aims to please
God above –
God Who is spouse,
employer, friend,
even a seeming foe –
asking only what’s
for our good,
not ever for woe.
