Luther: servant and free

Thursday, January 21, 2016
    Feast of Agnes, Child Martyr at Rome, 304
    You have been set free from sin and have become slaves to righteousness.
    —Romans 6:18 (NIV)
    A Christian man is most free lord of all, and subject to none; a Christian man is the most dutiful servant of all, and subject to everyone.
    ... Martin Luther (1483-1546), Treatise on Christian Liberty [1520], p. 312 (see the book)
    See also Rom. 6:18; Ps. 116:16; 119:32,45; Matt. 20:25-28; Mark 9:35; 10:42-45; Luke 14:8-11; John 8:32,36; Rom. 6:14,19-23; Gal. 5:1; 1 Pet. 2:16
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, thank you for my freedom. Grant me a servant’s heart.
