Character is like a rock.
If it's good character, it is the foundation upon which an incredible life is built.
If it is bad, it is like a boulder, an obstacle, that trips up and sinks a meaningful life.
Every person's character is developing or deteriorating. Only through intentionally pursuing good character can a person move towards the life they were meant to live.
Perhaps nothing is more rare in our day and age than loyalty, consistently demonstrating our support and keeping our commitments to someone and something. Baptisms, which we celebrate today, are intended to be a powerful demonstration to lifetime loyalty.
Loyalty is showing complete and constant support for someone or something.
Loyalty is what you do, not what you say.
Loyalty is a willing decision.
Loyalty is demanding and sacrificial.
Loyalty doesn’t tap out.
“It was just before the Passover Festival. Jesus knew that the hour had come for him to leave this world and go to the Father. Having loved his own who were in the world, he loved them to the end.”
