Ongoing commitment

This month of celebrations for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee is an appropriate time to think about one of the most important aspects of discipleship — perseverance.

Notes to Growing Christians David Jackman

We are all rightly amazed at the quality and sheer consistency of her reign and should be thankful to God for his answers to many prayers in providing us with such a devoted and dependable sovereign. The secret is not, of course, in the outward ceremonies and trappings of monarchy, in the image portrayed or the privileges enjoyed, but in the inner resolve to do her duty, by serving God and her peoples. Dedicating her life to this vision more than 60 years ago, the Queen’s life has demonstrated the fulfilment of that resolve, year by year, day by day.
