Masters and slaves

Adobe Acrobat

After addressing husbands and wives and fathers and children, Paul turns to masters and slaves. The Ephesian church had believing slaves and believing masters, who needed to be taught God's will for them. What does the Bible teach about slavery? What help do such passages give to us today? They give us great help, and great hope, and we cannot afford to skip them.

Ephesians 6:5-9

5Servants, be obedient to them that are your masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in singleness of your heart, as unto Christ; 6Not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but as the servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart; 7With good will doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men: 8Knowing that whatsoever good thing any man doeth, the same shall he receive of the Lord, whether he be bond or free. 9And, ye masters, do the same things unto them, forbearing threatening: knowing that your Master also is in heaven; neither is there respect of persons with him. (KJV)
