Daily Nugget

    Sunday, July 1st, 2012.

Today's cherished Nugget from guest blogger Pastor Bill

Archbishop Secker used to say, “God has three sorts of servants in the world: some are slaves, and serve Him from fear; others are hirelings, and serve for wages; and the last are sons, who serve because they love.”

Many of us start our journey with God as slaves serving Him with fear of messing up and God "getting" you. Some evolve into working for God for what they get out of it, either in this world or in the eternity to come. As we draw closer to God, we understand He isn’t just out to catch us failing, or doling out rewards to us, but God wants to have fellowship with us as family.  The apostle Paul explains it  this way in Galatians 4:4-7, “But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law, To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons. And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father. Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.”

God, thanks You. Amen. [‘nuff said.]
