TEXT : Acts14:8-19 , Psalm12:1-3 , Proverbs11:13 & 28:20
TOPIC : A FAITHFUL SPIRIT
One of the assignments of the Spirit of God, is to make God’s people faithful. Nowadays faithful sons, daughters, Spouses, Parents, business Partners are scarce. Reliable, dependable, people that will not betray trust are scarce. Proverbs 20:6 .
I pray that the Holy Spirit will deliver us from unfaithful people in Jesus Name.
What does it mean to be faithful?
According to the Dictionary; being faithful means to remain loyal and steadfast. Faithfulness comes from a place of trust and loyalty. As a Christian it is important to be faithful to both God and man.
Faithful means constant, loyal imply qualities of stability, dependability, and devotion. It implies long continued and steadfast fidelity to whatever one is bound to by a pledge, duty or obligation. Proverbs 3:3 .
I pray that the grace to remain faithful in our journey of life , God will grant to us in Jesus Name.
In Psalm 12:1 David cried to the Lord for help for the godly man ceases; for the faithful fail from among men. He was in trouble, He served Saul with all his heart but was hated. His Son, Absalom wanted to overthrow him. Ahitophel his closest adviser turned against him. Where can David find faithful men?
As we approach end of the World, faithfulness is scarce. 2 Timithy3:2 . Trust breakers, heart breakers, traitors are many and that’s the signs of the end times.
In Acts 14:8-19 People called Paul and Barnabas gods in verses 11 and 18 , then the next verse they stoned them to point of death. Typical nature of Man. They hailed them today and wanted to kill them the next day.
When we are surprised at the behaviour of Man, it’s because we don’t know the nature of man.
Are you faithful to your Spouse, Children, Parents, Friends, Colleagues, Neighbours, Business Partners, In your Ministry, To the body of Christ?
There are 3 things you must take note :
1)Be a faithful person. Proverbs 28:20 . Make up your mind to be faithful both to God and to Man. Be a faithful person if you want to go far in life.
2)Don’t be overly shocked because of unfaithful, betrayal of human beings. Trust in the Lord God Almighty alone. He will never let you down.
3)Be careful of your association, it affects your faithfulness in all areas of your life and consistency of conviction. The Jews that came persuaded the people Acts 14:19 , and talked them away from their faithfulness. 2 Corinthian 3:8 .
Benefits of Being Faithful
