Faithfulness

A crucial concept in scripture is “faithfulness.” It starts with the faithfulness of God. God is faithful to us. He never stops giving, never stops loving, never stops sustaining, and never stops providing. He always does what He says He will do. He is a faithful God. Those made in His image, when returned to His moral image through conversion, will be like God in this transitive character trait. God is faithful and believers in the Lord will also be faithful. 1 Corinthians 1:9 and 10:13 both say that God is faithful. The same epistle says this in chapter 4 verse 2: “Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful.” A steward is someone given something to take care of, such as a property, treasure, or responsibility. In this case, Paul says that God gave him the mysteries of God of which he is a steward. This is a name for the gospel. This saving message was given to Him and with it he needed to be faithful. He says it is required of a steward to be faithful. He doesn’t say it is required to be smart or talent or rich or strong. Everyone can be faithful. God is faithful as the supreme example, but as a common earthly example, consider a loyal, faithful dog that does not leave its owner. Many stories are told of an owner of a dog, who died, and the dog stays near him in death, so all the way to the end. Faithfulness to read your Bible means consistently reading your Bible. The Bible is a gift from God. Read it daily. A believer should be faithful to church because that is specifically taught. Be faithful.
