Loyalty - February 2014


Loyalty Bible Study
In the dictionary, the word loyal means unswerving in allegiance as 1) faithful allegiance to one’s sovereign or government, 2) faithful to a private person to whom fidelity is due, 3) faithful to a cause, ideal or custom. Synonyms are: faithful, allegiance, devotion, dedication, constant, unwavering, steady, unfailing.

What’s the difference between being loyal to a local sports team, say the Giants or Rams, and being loyal to the coach of a team for which you play?

Think of the people, organizations, teams, causes, etc. to which you are (or have been) loyal. Which ones are deserving of your loyalty? Which ones are not?

What does the Bible have to say about loyalty and being loyal?



  1. Loyalty is unwavering in good times and bad. (Proverbs 17:17)

  2. Loyalty is what you do, not what you say. (Matthew 26:33-35 and 26:69-75)

  3. Loyalty is in your heart. It is willing and not reluctant. (Psalm 78:8)

  4. Loyalty can be demanding. (Exodus 17:8-13)

  5. Loyalty may involve sacrifice. (2 Chronicles 11:13-16)

  6. Loyalty to the Lord will be rewarded. (Psalm 84:10-11) When this psalm says “those whose walk is blameless” it refers to Genesis 17:1 when the Lord appeared to Abraham and said to him “walk with me and be blameless” meaning that Abraham would receive the Lord’s promises if he was faithful and obedient.

  7. Disloyalty will be punished. Because Edom deserted Israel in its time of need, "I will bring you plummeting down," said the Lord. (Obadiah 1:4-14, especially verses 4 and 11)

How is loyalty different from friendship? How is it the same as friendship? (There's a real difference. Look up both words in the dictionary.)

How do you feel when a friend proves himself loyal or faithful to you?



How are you at being a loyal and faithful friend?

Next Steps:

  • Perhaps the most familiar story in the Bible about loyalty is found in the book of Ruth. Really, the whole book is the story of Ruth's mother-in-law, Naomi. She, her husband and two sons had traveled to the land of Moab to escape a famine in Israel. Naomi alone survived and with her were the two Moabite widows of her sons. When she decided to return to Israel, the women embarked with her on the journey. She, however, urged them to return to their birth families. One did. The other, Ruth, swore to go where she went, to die and be buried where Naomi was buried, and to adopt Naomi's God. As a result of this commitment to be loyal to Naomi, Ruth found a new and affluent husband and became the grandmother of King David and a direct ancestress of Jesus Christ.

History

  • This same David's life depended on another famously loyal friend, the son and presumptive heir to the throne of King Saul. The two men loved each other and swore to protect each other. David had already been privately anointed as the next king by the powerful prophet, Samuel and he was serving as a minstrel in the court of King Saul. David's victories in battle and popularity with the people provoked the king's wrath so much that Saul decided to kill David. When Jonathan learned this, he helped David to escape. This was a real test of his loyalty to his friend because Jonathan's actions ensured that the throne would never pass to him. You can read about this in 1 Samuel 18:1-4 and 1 Samuel 20:1-42.

Significance

  • Jesus is another significant example of a man who exhibited a fierce loyalty. He was loyal, however, to his heavenly God and Father. In John 5, Jesus is quoted as saying that he did nothing except what he saw his father doing. In fact, Jesus even declared that he put his trust in no man. His loyalty to God caused a lot of people to misunderstand his intentions, as when he neglected to visit Lazarus when he was sick and could have been healed, for example. By waiting until after Lazarus was dead, he demonstrated God's power even over death as a way to foreshadow his own resurrection to his disciples.

Considerations

  • Many people proclaimed their loyalty to Jesus, including Simon Peter. On the same night that Jesus was betrayed and arrested by the Jewish authorities, the day before his death, Peter bragged that even if everyone else disowned him, he would not. Jesus countered this claim with the statement that before the rooster crowed in the morning, Peter would have denied him three times. Unlike Jonathan, Peter's fear overcame his commitment to be loyal to his greatest friend. Fortunately, Jesus rose from the dead and was able to personally forgive Peter and restore his position as a leading apostle. See Matthew 26:33-37 and John 21:1-19.

Warning

  • The other disciple whose disloyalty to Jesus may be as famous as Peter's is Judas Iscariot. He was the treasurer of Jesus' band when he decided to betray him to the Jewish religious leaders who were desperate to find a way to kill him. For 30 pieces of silver, Judas Iscariot agreed to identify Jesus to the soldiers of the high priest the night before Passover and the day before Jesus died. The signal was a kiss. This ultimate disloyalty so backfired that Judas, unable to find the hope of forgiveness, committed suicide. Perhaps if Judas' disloyalty had been, like Peter's, an act based on fear and self-defense, instead of on greed and self-advancement, he too would have been restored to a place of favor after Jesus' resurrection

Afterward David also arose and went out of the cave, and called after Saul, “My lord the king!” And when Saul looked behind him, David bowed with his face to the earth and paid homage. And David said to Saul, “Why do you listen to the words of men who say, ‘Behold, David seeks your harm’? Behold, this day your eyes have seen how the Lord gave you today into my hand in the cave. And some told me to kill you, but I spared you. I said, ‘I will not put out my hand against my lord, for he is the Lord's anointed.’

And there lay Saul sleeping within the encampment, with his spear stuck in the ground at his head, and Abner and the army lay around him. Then said Abishai to David, “God has given your enemy into your hand this day. Now please let me pin him to the earth with one stroke of the spear, and I will not strike him twice.” But David said to Abishai, “Do not destroy him, for who can put out his hand against the Lord's anointed and be guiltless?” And David said, “As the Lord lives, the Lord will strike him, or his day will come to die, or he will go down into battle and perish.

And the Lord said to him, “Call his name Jezreel, for in just a little while I will punish the house of Jehu for the blood of Jezreel, and I will put an end to the kingdom of the house of Israel. And on that day I will break the bow of Israel in the Valley of Jezreel.”
