Whose Prisoner Are You?
that Paul should have this viewpoint. He was a prisoner of Rome and
was in a damp dungeon because of preaching the Gospel, but he really
considered himself to be a prisoner of the Lord. Paul recognized that
the Lord could use him where he was, and this is precisely what the
Lord did. During this imprisonment, Paul wrote letters to Philemon,
the Colossians, the Ephesians and the Philippians. These letters are
now contained in the Scriptures and have had great impact on the world
down through the ages."
It is good to ask ourselves,
Whose prisoner am I? Do I consider myself a prisoner of circumstances
or of the Lord Jesus Christ?

whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom
ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?"
