Loyalty and Faithfulness!

Proverbs 16:6

By loyalty and faithfulness iniquity is atoned for,
and by the fear of the LORD a man avoids evil.

By Christ’s loyalty and faithfulness to his Father, he left the glory of heaven to become human among the cattle dung and straw of a stable. By his loyalty and faithfulness to us, he stuck with us and did not call down twelve legions of angels, even when we came to haul him away on trumped up charges, hand him over to thugs, and treat him like cattle dung. By Christ’s loyalty and faithfulness, he humbled himself unto death, even death on a cross. And by that loyalty and faithfulness, our sin was atoned for. Now we can receive that atonement by our loyalty and faithfulness to Christ and live to avoid evil and fear God.
