"SLAVE" by John MacArthur is a very interesting book explaining since we have been bought with a price, we belong to Christ and his possession. The author clearly throughout this book uses the metaphor of our salvation belonging to Christ that we belong to him and not ourselves. The word servant actually in the Greek means "bond slave". He explains that a servant is hired, but a slave is under ownership. This book definitely defines that once we were a slave of sin, but now we are a slave to righteousness in Christ. This is a must read for the Christian reader so he/she can find the hidden truth of their identity in Christ!
