Today, my friends, I’d like to review John MacArthur’s book Slave. Published in January of 2012, Slave: The Hidden Truth About Your Identity in Christ a book detailing the importance of one word which expanded his understanding of our relationship to God. That word is the Greek word for slavery often translated servant.
This book was not only a fascinating read, and a great exegesis of Scripture, but also a real encouragement. If you’ve ever doubted salvation, or wondered if you could lose what has been freely given, this book will clear that up. It was also convicting, in such an intense and deeply felt way, that I can genuinely say it’s changed the way I obey my God and Savior. Understanding the Biblical truths that MacArthur explains in this book makes obedience a greater joy than I before imagined. It will bless you, edify you, and possibly rebuke you. I recommend this book to all audiences, and in particular those believers you know who struggle with assurance. You can find this book here at Grace to You, or in paperback, hardcover, Kindle, and audio. As well as the book, there’s also a two part sermon series that goes into what’s covered in the book. If you’re unable to afford the book, the sermons are a great replacement! I’ll include the links below. As always, beloved brethren, be good Berean’s and study to show yourselves approved.
