Loyalty has become an old-fashioned word. Nobody is loyal to anything anymore because of so many choices. It’s so easy to be faithful when the situation is all good. It’s easy to be loyal when you get all the benefits and favors. But what do we do when the going gets tough? What will we do when everything else fails? When everyone walks out? For us to really shine out in this dark generation, we need to be like Jesus who chose to “stay loyal, stay faithful.”
Catch: Success comes after passing tough tests. Thus, we need to stay committed.
“So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life – your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life – and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him.” Romans 12:1 (The Message)
