In order to become effective Christians, we must all develop the character trait of faithfulness, in both our relationship with God, and our relationships with our fellow man. However, faithfulness is but entry-level relationship, and God truly desires more from us. As important as faithfulness is, He desires us to be as King David was to Jonathan. Loyal!
There is a distinct difference between the characteristics of faithfulness and loyalty. A person can be faithful but not necessarily loyal. Faithfulness is a learned, sometimes mechanical response that comes from the head. Loyalty springs from the heart, and is felt much more deeply. Faithfulness believes in being blessed, but loyalty believes in being a blessing.
Loyalty is the cry of the moment, not just in the local church, but in the entire Body of Christ. The subject of loyalty will change you considerably if you will take it to heart and allow it to penetrate your spirit.
It will revolutionize your life!
