Where Do My Loyalties Lie?: Top 25 Jesus Quotes: #13


Something about watching romantic comedies makes us relationship gurus.

We can see potential threats to fidelity and loyalty from a mile away...within the unrealistic confines of one of Hollywood's steadfast genres.


  • "No! Don't go out with him! Can't you see he doesn't really care about you?"
  • "That guy better stop hanging out after work with her..."
  • "What are they THINKING??!?"


But when it comes to real life, we struggle a bit.



In fact, we struggle so much that it wouldn't hurt to get the 13th quote about Jesus (on azquotes.com's top-25 list) put on a pair of contact lenses so it was always in front of us:


"Beware of anything
that competes with your loyalty
to Jesus Christ."  -  Oswald Chambers

Truth is...Whether it's commitment to a sports team or loyalty to a job or even dedication to a particular idea about Jesus, anything that takes precedence ahead of allegiance to the actual person of Jesus is a foundation of shifting sand.
