Loyalty defined: giving or showing firm and constant support or allegiance to a person or institution.
I recently listened to a friend lament over the loss of loyalty in his life. He indicated that over the past decade he has seen around his life a steady erosion of the principle of loyalty to God, family, and friends. Was he right?
To say yes to Jesus Christ and no to self is taking a God-directred step that defies the natural order of this world; it is a willingness to give up self and the accolades of men and embrace a new order of life where humility, grace, and honor of our King reign supreme. The “Christ Decision” is entering the narrow gate, a path that few choose yet none will ever regret.
