"We all serve someone. Those who serve sin and the Devil end up in bondage (John 8:34). Those who serve the Son end up free (v. 36). Paul was ridiculously happy to serve the Lord and considered himself the Lord's prisoner (Eph. 4:1). Imprisoned for and by and with Jesus is not only liberty, it is a calling. Humans do not send us to prison when we are sent for the gospel's sake. God calls us to prison. Therefore, our primary goal is to not escape from prison or seek deliverance from trouble or evacuate from countries that are disintegrating. Our goal is to glorify Jesus and walk worthy of His calling - the call to be His prisoner."
