A Good Knight

Colossians 3:23-24, NIV: Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.
Perhaps you’ve heard the legends of good knights; men of valor who lived by a code; ready to give their lives for king and country. They are portrayed as men of integrity, honor, and pursuers of truth and justice. We might wonder these days if such people really ever existed. For in our world today, such qualities are scarce and such noble character uncared for as the code of so many is to care first and foremost for one--themselves. But, in truth, there is a most noble King who is Christ, and there is a need for many to swear allegiance to Him--to uphold His code, His truth, and His justice--to be a people of integrity who would die for King and His Kingdom. In every country, in every city, in every workplace and school; in every community and every church, there is a need for those who will take up the Sword of Truth, no longer living to satisfy themselves, but living in service and sacrifice to the King. In every time and every place, there is still the need for a good knight.
