WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE A CHRISTIAN THE WAY FIRST-CENTURY BELIEVERS DEFINED IT?
As followers of Jesus, we call ourselves Christians, but the fact is this word only appears three times in the Bible. In the New Testament, youll find a host of terms that identify the followers of Jesus, but there is one metaphor used more frequently than any other. Slave.
Thats right. The first Christians, having been galvanized by the words of Jesus, gave up everything and called themselves slaves of Christ. Now you can learn why this word best described early Christ-followersand youll see how an understanding of this truth changes the way to follow Him now. This discovery will unveil the riches of your salvation in a radically new way.
Now you or your group can use this study guide to drill down through each major concept in Dr. John MacArthurs remarkable book Slave:
REWIND. Look again at the important passages.
RETHINK. Check all the angles.
REFLECT. Consider how it affects you.
REACT. Change your life.
The gospel is not simply an invitation to become Christs associate or friendit is a mandate to become His slave.
John MacArthur expertly and lucidly explains that Jesus frees us from bondage into a royal slavery that we might be His possession. Those who would be His children must, paradoxically, be willing to be His slaves. DR. R.C. SPROUL
In this new book, John MacArthur presents a powerfully riveting and truly eye-opening look at our relationship to the Lord Jesus. Want to rise to a new level of trust and confidence in your Master? Then this is the book for you! JONI EARECKSON TADA, Joni and Friends International Disability Center
Dr. John MacArthurs teaching on slavery resonates in the deepest recesses of my inner-man. As an African-American pastor, I have been there. That is why the thought of someone writing about slavery as being a God-send was the most ludicrous, unconscionable thing that I could have ever imagined . . . until I read this book. Now I see that becoming a slave is a biblical command, completely redefining the idea of freedom in Christ. I dont want to simply be a follower or even just a servant . . . but a slave. THE REV. DR. DALLAS H. WILSON, JR., Vicar, St. Johns Episcopal Chapel, Charleston, South Carolina
