The Prisoner of the Lord

Ephesians 3:1 ( For this cause I Paul, the prisoner of Jesus Christ for you Gentiles….) The current verses continues on as Paul begins to give his Personal Testimony of salvation.  The APOSTLE PAUL considered himself as THE LORD’S PRISONER WILLINGLY for the sake of the body of Christ. He was not so much limited by the things, or people around him; but the Holy Ghost was leading him, and infusing him with GRACE, power & ability to fulfill God’s Will for His church; and for the Gentiles unto whom he was called to preach unto.~(Eph.3:1)  A prisoner does not operate on their own, but they operate according to the prinicipals, and purposes of the ONE UNTO WHOM THEY COMMIT.  In 2. Tim.1:8- Apostle Paul reinterates again that he is the Lord’s prisoner, and is jubilant about it, and cautions His Spiritual son Timothy not to be ashamed of him, nor of the testimony of our Lord Jesus Christ.  You see, when you belong to God, and you have His Agenda in heart and mind; then you don’t seek to do YOUR OWN THING, or the things that ONLY PLEASE YOU.  A prisoner doesn’t do, or go, or say just WHATEVER THEY WANT TO:  they hinge everything upon the pleasing of the Overseer.  A prisoner of Christ is not like a natural one; wherein there is bondage: but in Christ there is SWEET LIBERITY;  but not Looseness.  In other words, you have your own Will, as to obey, or not to Obey: but in rebellion, there is always consequences; because it gives the enemy a door of attack upon your life.  Let us willingly serve the Lord, and seek to bring as much GLORY TO HIM as possible; because He not only gave US HIS DIVINE LIFE to make us a New Creation; but He have His VERY LIFE up for us to obtain eternal salvation & redemption through Him.  He is alive forevermore as LORD, KING, HIGH PRIEST, INTERCESSOR, MEDIATOR & ADVOCATE for us.  Amen & Amen
