Hello Faithful Readers, Hope You’re Being Blessed By This Series Of Posts. Let’s Continue & Learn About The 6th Attribute…
To be in faith is to be sincere with yourself, God and others, especially when it comes to acknowledging your mistakes or asking for help.
To put in to perspective, to be in faith is to eliminate the feelings of fear, doubts, angers, grudge, worries etc… and hold tight onto courage, belief, happiness, forgiveness and certainty. It’s easier said than done but it is possible, just ask anyone who is successful in their respective field of work.
So relating it to God, always remember what it says in the Holy Bible:
“But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.” Hebrews 11:6 NKJV
Faith has everything to do with reason, with emotions following behind (not leading, but following). We have learnt that the 1st attribute of faith is A Good Conscience, the 2nd attribute is Honesty, the 3rd attribute is Justice, the 4th attribute is Truth and the 5th attribute is Sincerity. Number 6 is:
His lord said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant; you were faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.’ Matthew 25:21 NKJV
It wouldn’t make sense if faithfulness wasn’t an attribute of faith, would it? After all, it has the word faith in the word. If you look around, at the world we are currently living in, faithfulness is something that is very rare unfortunately.
It seems as times goes on, it’s losing more and more of it’s value in people’s daily acts. You can ask even your parents or older relatives and friends, if people were so unfaithful when they were younger, and most definetly their answers will be NO!
So what has happened to (when you think about it) this essential attribute of any relationship? Well, both the Lord Jesus and the Apostle Paul, when speaking about the end times said by the Holy Spirit:
And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold. Matthew 24:12 NKJV
But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be LOVERS OF THEMESELVES, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, TRAITORS, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away! 2 Timothy 3:1-5 NKJV
Honestly, it can be hard to want to be faithful when we live in a anti faithful world. The easy option of course is to follow the crowd, but in doing this, you won’t be pleasing God, only the devil.
Being faithful means staying loyal to what you said you would do, long after the mood and circumstances you said it in goes away.
When it comes to your relationship with God and anyone else, remaining faithful is never an option, but is your priority, it’s justice. Loyalty is everything.
