St Bride's: Soul Thoughts

January 15

"You have the same Master in heaven." (Ephesians 6: 9)

Paul is speaking to those who owned slaves. Slavery was common in the first century, but Paul states that in God's sight both master and slave are equal. Slavery is sadly still present in the modern world, and it can be present in all our lives if we are addicted to some behaviours or desires. We can be enslaved by addiction, by work patterns or by compulsive behaviour. We can start releasing ourselves by claiming the freedom we have in Christ and so realising our true worth.

Lord, help us to free our world from oppression and to seek true freedom of mind, heart and body, that we may be worthy of the dignity you have given us as your children. Amen.
