God is faithful, by whom you were called into the fellowship of his Son. Jesus Christ our Lord.1 Corinthians 1:9
Part of me just wants to leave today’s thought with those first three words – God is faithful. It doesn’t need further explanation. It is a straightforward fact and a wonderful truth. It was Moses who first explained this truth to the people of Israel. In Deuteronomy 7:9 we read:
“Know therefore that the LORD your God is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and steadfast love with those who love him and keep his commandments, to a thousand generations.”
God is faithful in all his promises and he is faithful to all his children but sometimes the only way for us to appreciate this truth is to look at it from a personal perspective. Think back over your life as a child of God. When you have been afraid, have you felt his presence? During times of grief, did you know his comfort. Through trials and turmoil, did he help you stand? Have you been saved by his grace?
When you understand the faithfulness of God in your own life, you can share that truth assuredly with others. In a world of unfaithfulness, people need to know that there is something that they can rely on with absolute confidence.
You may not know all the answers to the questions people ask about God but you can say with certainty – ‘This one thing I know, God is faithful.’
