To whom do you give your loyalty?
Today's devotion is based on Acts 2:21, "Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved."
As we work our way through life, you and I develop all kinds of loyalties. There is loyalty to family, loyalty to friends, loyalty to mentors and employers, co-workers, and colleagues. But if our loyalty to human beings begins to take the place of our Savior from sin, we have drifted into a place where our Lord does not want us to be.
Consider where your loyalties lie. Give them some serious thought. Repent of those loyalties that have clouded your focus on Jesus. Be washed in his blood. And with fresh clarity, fix your eyes on the only Lord of life and death there is, for "everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved."
Please pray with me: Forgive me, Lord Jesus, for the misguided loyalties that have distracted me from you. Please fill me with your Spirit. Renew the zeal of my loyalty to you. Amen.
