And Jehovah spake unto Moses, saying, Sanctify unto me all the first-born, . . . both of man and of beast: it is mine. Exodus 13.1, 2.

Here we are told that hereafter all the first-born of Israel belonged to God. Similarly today, all who have been bought with the precious blood of the Lamb are God’s. We have been purchased, and therefore we have no liberty. Who may say from their hearts, “God, I belong to You, I am Your slave”? “For ye were bought with a price: glorify God therefore in your body” (1 Cor. 6.20). The day a person is saved is the day that he has been purchased. A slave is purchased with money, whereas a servant is hired for money. One who is bought has no liberty to himself at all, but one who is hired does have liberty. We are God’s bondslaves, not God’s servants. According to the original language of the Bible, we are God’s bought slaves and not God’s hired servants.
