Master in heaven

Master in heaven is a name that Paul coined when he was teaching the Colossian Christians to be fair to their slaves. They were to consider how God treats His people, and the fact that He is watching our behavior. The word kyrios is usually translated “Lord,” but it can also mean “sir” or “master.” In the context of Paul’s message to slave owners it means “master.”
