We have never dealt with the stain of slavery embedded in this country’s DNA. Those of us privileged to do so just kind of moved on. But the spirit of slavery persists and the Apostle Paul refers to in in spiritual terms in ancient writings. Despite its complicity in the American institution of slavery, the church did not receive a spirit of slavery, but a spirit of adoption. We are all “adopted” into life by the grace of God. That’s the new creation for which we eagerly long.
“A Spirit of Slavery” at the Reedville Church this Sunday, 9:30 am. Contact us for a Zoom invitation.
