God gave us a mission and he is waiting for us to complete it. However, instead of being slaves of God we voluntary become slaves of other people and organizations: parents, spouses, employers, governments etc.
We are afraid of being hungry and slave for an employer.
We are afraid of being lonely and slave for a spouse.
We are afraid of being prosecuted and slave for a government.
In fact there should be only one fear: fear of God. If we are not afraid of God - we don't believe in him. God is the strongest power in this world. If we have God, we have no fear for everything else.
By becoming slaves of somebody else, we lose ourselves. We lose our life mission, we don't want to hear internal voice of intuition. We close our heart.
