Text Verse: Rom 1:14

Introduction:

Paul realizes his position not only to the Lord but also to the world. Paul is referred to as a servant of Jesus Christ, and a debtor to the world.

We too, if we have been born again should be a servant of Jesus Christ, and be a debtor to the world. Not in a finacial sense, but in a spiritual sense.
