    still thanking: if your asking if i hear audable voice no, yes you can say from the bible ,i like how you put in there a?written by people" but you did not add god inspired. the only thing i can say personally is i have been a new creation, the physical things have been my desire before and now i desire spirtual things. and im not talking like a jw does. i desire to be holy and to grow in holiness.

    Maybe they aren't proudly saying it, mP.

    Maybe they are humbly saying it... as in not wanting to deny Him, simply because some people will accuse them of being proud or arrogant or whatever.

    As for calling oneself a slave or a servant - why is this shameful? He served (and still does serve) us as well.

    Peace to you,

    Why don't you describe yourself as a child of god - why a slave?

    The Spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship. And by him we cry, “Abba, Father.” The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children. - Romans 8:15,16

    @cofty, how is "your new body" and "full rights as God's adopted child" treating you? Romans 8:

    The Future Glory

    18 Yet what we suffer now is nothing compared to the glory he will reveal to us later. 19 For all creation is waiting eagerly for that future day when God will reveal who his children really are. 20 Against its will, all creation was subjected to God's curse. But with eager hope, 21 the creation looks forward to the day when it will join God's children in glorious freedom from death and decay. 22 For we know that all creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time. 23 And we believers also groan, even though we have the Holy Spirit within us as a foretaste of future glory, for we long for our bodies to be released from sin and suffering. We, too, wait . with eager hope for the day when God will give us our full rights as his adopted children, [ j ] including the new bodies he has promised us. 24 We were given this hope when we were saved(If we already have something, we don't need to hope [ k ] for it. 25 But if we look forward to something we don't yet have, we must wait patiently and confidently.)

    26 And the Holy Spirit helps us in our weakness. For example, we don't know what God wants us to pray for. But the Holy Spirit prays for us with groanings that cannot be expressed in words. 27 And the Father who knows all hearts knows what the Spirit is saying, for the Spirit pleads for us believers [ l ] in harmony with God's own will. 28 And we know that God causes everything to work together [ m ] for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them. 29 For God knew his people in advance, and he chose them to become like his Son, so that his Son would be the firstborn [ n ] among many brothers and sisters. 30 And having chosen them, he called them to come to him. And having called them, he gave them right standing with himself. And having given them right standing, he gave them his glory.
