St Bride's: Soul Thoughts

January 21

"I appeal to you as a prisoner of Jesus Christ." (Philemon 9)

Paul writes to a friend asking him to take his runaway slave back, and speaks of being a 'slave' of Jesus Christ himself. We are all prisoners of our own humanity, held back by all kinds of compulsions and attitudes. God in Christ can bring us freedom and change our lives dramatically, so that we find new fulfilment in his service.

Lord, help us to know the joy of your kingdom, whose service is perfect freedom. Amen.
