READING: "SLAVE: The Hidden Truth About Your Identity in Christ" by John MacArthur Jr.

Slave: The Hidden Truth About Your Identity in ChristSlave: The Hidden Truth About Your Identity in Christ by John F. MacArthur Jr.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

An eye-opening book that really changed the way I see myself as a follower of Jesus Christ. John MacArthur explains well the meaning of "Doulos", which is the original greek word used in the New Testament. I'm not just a "servant" of Christ, but a "SLAVE" of Christ.

"Like slaves, we are to be fully devoted to our Master alone. Our greatest concern is summed up in the words of Christ: "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength" (Mark 12:30 NKJV). Such exclusive devotion makes it impossible to serve God and other masters at the same time. We cannot simultaneously serve God and money, worship the true God and idols, or live according to the Spirit and the flesh."

- pg. 48, Chapter 3 (The Good and Faithful Slave), "Slave, The Hidden Truth About Your Identity In Christ". By John MacArthur jr.
