Were you a slave when you were called? Well, don't let it bother you; although if you can gain your freedom, take advantage of the opportunity.
For a person who was a slave when he was called is the Lord's freedman; likewise, someone who was a free man when he was called is a slave of the Messiah.
You were bought at a price, so do not become slaves of other human beings.
Brothers, let each one remain with God in the condition in which he was called.
