"Slave to the World"
by D. M. Larson


What does it mean to be a servant of God? What will it mean for our life?

I don't know if I can live that way.

I want to ... I really do... But I don't know the way. I don't know how. I feel like I always go about it the wrong way.

I want to follow... But all I hear is distant echoes... I'm never sure where they are coming from or where to turn. I want to turn to you... I really do. If only I knew the way. I feel lost... Without a real connection to this world... Or the next.

Lead me... Take me under your wing... I wish to follow... To serve.

I have served many masters in my life but never the right one.

I spent so much of my life serving others. A servant to everything. A slave. So many of us are slaves to our passions. They master us...

But there is one master who is merciful. Mercy master... Mercy please... I am a slave to the world around me. Deliver me... And I will follow.

Read the play, "Midnight of the Soul":

Inspired by the quote from the Book of James (1:1) "James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, To the twelve tribes scattered among the nations: Greetings."
