WHERE do our loyalties lie?
If I am watching my favourite Premiership Football team, my loyalties are most certainly with them, especially if it is against one of the top four other teams in the league.
The amazing thing is, that if one of those teams is playing in Europe, then I will always want them to be victorious.
How fickle can we be?
So often in life, it can be so easy to change sides especially if it means an advantage to us, particularly financial, even though it may mean that we upset someone who has been very good to us.
At other times it may be beneficial to change our minds and support, so that we can help other people.
In the Gospels we read that John the Baptist sent his disciples to Jesus Christ to ask Him if He really was the Promised Messiah, even though he had heard of all the good things that Jesus was doing.
John was the forerunner for Jesus, but he wanted to be sure that this was the One who he had been proclaiming.
John had been imprisoned by King Herod and he knew that he could be executed any day at the King’s whim.
His disciples returned to John with the Good News that Jesus was indeed the One sent from Heaven, and he need not worry or doubt.
If we doubt the reality of Jesus Christ, let us look around and see Him alive in Christian people.
