“Paul a servant (slave) of Christ Jesus . . .”

“and, having been set free from sin, have become slaves of righteousness.”

Romans 6:19
“I am speaking in human terms, because of your natural limitations. For just as you once presented your members as slaves to impurity and to lawlessness leading to more lawlessness, so now present your members as slaves to righteousness leading to sanctification.”
John 15:14-15
“14 You are my friends if you do what I command you. 15 No longer do I call you servants, for the servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all that I have heard from my Father I have made known to you.”
Galatians 4:7
“So you are no longer a slave, but a son, and if a son, then an heir through God.”
1 John 4:17-18

“17 By this is love perfected with us, so that we may have confidence for the day of judgment, because as he is so also are we in this world. 18 There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love.”
