Slaves, Orphans, Sons, Kings and Priests

As a follow on to this post, I would submit for your consideration, the following.
  • A Slave serves from a point of fear, towards the purpose of self preservation.
  • An Orphan serves from a point of loss, towards the purpose of identity
  • A Son serves from the point of identity, towards the purpose of the Father's mission
  • A King or a Priest, serves from a point of identity, exercising their authority in humility and service.
 Only the last two describe the Child of God: we are Kings and Priests (Rev. 5:10),  and Sons of God (Gal. 3:26)

Both the slave and the orphan serve for selfish reasons.
