The worship team of Bethel Church released a song in 2015 called “No Longer Slaves.” The lyrics read “I’m no longer a slave to fear./ I am a child of God.” The lyrics of this song were taken directly from this scripture. As children of God, we are adopted into His family, with 100% of the rights and privileges that come with that distinction. We do not have to skulk around the outskirts, eating table scraps and fearing punishment. We are fully bought by the blood of Jesus Christ. That makes us full blooded children of the Highest God! We are no longer enslaved by those things which once bound us. We are free in The Spirit of The Lord and by the sacrifice of our Loving Savior.
And we pray:
Precious Lord, Thank You for removing my yoke of bondage. Thank You for taking me into Your family and making me Your very own. Erase the slave mentality that trips me up sometimes and replaces it with the confidence that I belong to You. Amen.
