Ephesians Series • 21 “Submission: Servants & Masters” 6:5-9 In part of this message, we will hear the conclusion of the responsibilities of employees to serve in their jobs as serving unto the Lord. The remainder of the message shows how bosses should treat their employees. The leader should lead like Jesus and he should only expect as much obedience and diligence from his employees as he shows to Christ.
Ephesians Series • 21 “Submission: Servants & Masters” 6:5-9 As Paul continues to describe our duty to submit to one another as unto Christ, he deals with the servant and master relationship. This is not an endorsement of slavery or the slave-trade. Paul is dealing with an historical fact of bond-servitude that was used to pay off debts or other charges. The equivalent today is the relationship between boss and employee.
