Outflow - A Slave's Provision

OUTFLOW out-flow (out-flo) n. 1. the act of flowing out. 2. that which flows out. 3. any outward movement.

The apostle Paul often referred to himself as a bondservant of the Lord Jesus Christ. He was a slave (doulos) of Christ, a slave to righteousness, and no longer a slave to sin. He knew that everything pertaining to Life and Godliness flowed out from the One who purchased him and owned him! Slaves must totally depend on the one who owns them for their provision. We who believe are all slaves to Christ and we must look to Him as our provider. He is our life and all provision flows from Him.
