The Christian under orders

He who hitches his chariot to a star is not thereby sinking to a lower status. True as this is in worldly matters it is superlatively true in spiritual affairs. The man led by the Spirit of God - the Christ led man - is the man of highest, and not of lowest, dignity. As it is the mark of a Christian man that he is ‘under orders,’ so it is the source of all his dignity that he is ‘under orders’.
