“I will never leave you or forsake you.” Hebrews 13:5
“I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matthew 28:20
At some point in our lives, we have all been damaged by disloyalty. We can think back to a time when a friend, a family member, maybe even an ex-spouse turned their back on us and left us alone, wondering where to turn next. But the reality is that we can’t let past disloyalty keep us from stepping out and taking relational risks in the future.
If anyone ever understood the danger and sinister effects of disloyalty, it was Jesus Christ. In his most desperate hour, some of his closest friends turned their backs on him. Yet, he remained loyal through it all. And as we read in the Scriptures above, Jesus remains loyal to us today.
As the king of kings, Christ remains loyal to us through everything we face. No matter what we have done, he offers us his loyalty. And He gives us the power and the octane to remain loyal to those in our lives as well.
When you give your word to a friend, stick by what you say. Through thick and thin, stick with your commitments. Because it’s then that you’ll discover the power and promise of true loyalty.
