“And Jonathan climbed up upon his hands and upon his feet, and his armourbearer after him: and they fell before Jonathan; and his armourbearer slew after him.” 1 Samuel 14:13
I have struggled with preaching on the topic of “loyalty.” Allow me to explain why. If I were to get up on Sunday morning and, from behind this pulpit, make the statement, “You need to be loyal to God,” I would get a hearty round of “Amen’s.” However, if were to make the statement, “You need to be loyal to the pastor of your local church,” I might get a few “Amen’s” but I would also get a response of, “Where’s Pastor Campbell going with this?” Some, while they would agree with my first statement, would be extremely slow to agree with the second statement.
