Eph. 6:5-9 Gotta Serve Somebody.

This song by Dylan is truth. Everybody has a boss. As Christians we know who our ultimate boss is, because he is everyone’s ultimate boss, whether they acknowledge this or not. However, we are still called to be obedient to those who are our human bosses, provided they don’t ask or try to force us to do what is contrary to God’s infallible and inerrant word. We are not to do so grudgingly, but as that which sets us apart, we serve “with fear and trembling, in sincerity of heart, as to Christ, doing the will of God from the heart, with goodwill doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men.” It can’t just be surface service, but must come from the core of who we are. Again, whether in human terms one is a ‘slave’ or ‘free’, we all are called to serve, and by doing good from the heart, and to the Lord, we are promised that we “will receive the same from the Lord,” (v. 8) for there is no partiality of rank or station with God (v. 9).
