A serious commitment is something that should not be taken lightly, but this past year, I have grown closer and closer to my Savior and I wanted to demonstrate the new commitment I have to Him in a visible way.
“But if your servant says to you ‘I do not want to leave you,’ because he loves you…then take an awe and push it through his earlobe, into the door , and he will become your servant for life.” Deuteronomy 15:16
2,000 years ago, the Son of God endured terrible pain to pay the price to free me. Though I am released and free to do as I wish during my time on earth, I have chosen to return to Him, because He loves me. I don’t want to leave the God I love, who loves me more than I could ever imagine. I choose to serve Him for my life.
As a visible sign of the fact that I am a bond-servant, a servant who was set free, but chose to stay and serve my master out of love, I had my ear pierced a second time. I now have a permanent reminder that I am a servant, just as the bond-servants in the Bible times.
