Scripture Text: II Timothy 2:11-13
11 Here is a trustworthy saying: If we died with him, we will also live with him;
12 If we endure, we will also reign with him. If we disown him, he will also disown us;
13 If we are faithless, he remains faithful, for he cannot disown himself
God is Faithful
Most of the time we focus too much on what we consider to be sad circumstances in our lives instead of focusing on the Lord where our home is and our hearts should be! Every time we turn around it seems like we are faced with something negative or nasty. It’s either in our own lives or in the lives of others, family members, friends, neighbors, fellow church members, etc. God is faithful even in the midst of all our temptations. He is there, helping, wooing us in the right direction, showing us the way of escape.
We must be faithful because He is faithful! We must keep the faith because God will make good on all His promises to us.
Some areas in life where God is faithful to us.
1- God is faithful - He saves
2- God is faithful - He gives
3- God is faithful - He comforts
Point I. GOD IS FAITHFUL - HE SAVES
Romans 5:8 “But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”
Ephesians 2:8 “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith - and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God.”
Surely we all agree that at one time we were helpless, lost sinners in this world and we had no way of saving ourselves.
Point II. GOD IS FAITHFUL - HE GIVES
God will provide for our needs in life as we look to Him, seek His will and do what is right. Scripture reads “needs,” not “wants.”
Point III. GOD IS FAITHFUL - HE COMFORTS
Psalms 46:1 “God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.” We human beings do experience a lot of trouble in life! If you don’t believe me, just ask anybody!
God is faithful in our times of trouble!
God is faithful when we get in a bind!
God is faithful whenever we have terrible things happen to us!
God is faithful! And we need to focus our eyes and our spirits on Him if we are going to make it in this old sin-cursed world!
Hebrews 12:2 “Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”
Jesus was able to endure and overcome the cruelty of the cross because He looked beyond the cross to the Father and the joy of heaven!
We must do the same! GOD IS FAITHFUL!
