Wilson's Dictionary of Bible Types
Exodus 21:6 (c) This may be taken to represent the permanent attaching of the saved sinner to the purposes, the person, and the service of JESUS CHRIST, his new Lord and Master. The ear represents the hearing or the listening for commands. There surely comes a time in the life of the believer when he decides definitely to give his whole attention, effort and work to the Master who has purchased him with His Blood. (See also Psalm 40:6)
