Stand Up Next to God

In the course of battle, a commander would give careful instructions to the officers responsible for commanding the troops.

After laying out the battle plan, he would ask them two questions:
"Do you understand the order of the battle?" and,
"Do you commit yourself as a responsible lieutenant commander?"

If the answer was affirmative on both counts, the lieutenant saluted and said, "Yes, sir!"

We are called to live responsibly in an unstable world. It became unstable the moment that man chose disobedience to God. As we grow in the Christian life, our responsibility grows. If we ever had a call to personal responsibility, we have it in this imperative:

The Imperative of Self-Control
