Are You Faithful To Him?

Are You Faithful To Him?

Photo Credit: Brandon HellerFaithfulness. We have come to expect God to be faithful to us. To bless us. To keep us. To protect us. To provide our needs. He is always faithful. I’ve never seen the righteous forsaken, nor His seed begging bread.

But what do you do to show your faithfulness to God? We live in a day and time where everything is in a “hurry up” mode. More and more people are forsaking the assembly of each other in a church setting. I know that our church is not the only one who has several so called “members”, who seem to only come when they “feel” like it, or need something. I’m sure Jesus didn’t “feel” like going to the cross for me or you. He knew what He was going to go through. But His love for us out-weighed His physical situation.

We go to movies, ballgames, parties, etc., and sit for hours sometimes, but then say that church takes too long? There is something terribly wrong with that picture. Then there are those who show up just to say they went, then leave early. Sometimes before the preacher ever begins his message. To me, this is rude. Disrespectful to God, the pastor, and short cutting your spirit. I know that going to church doesn’t make you a Christian, but it helps to feed your spirit and get a renewal of His Spirit.

“Lord, forgive me and help me to not forsake You and Your presence. I don’t want to take for granted the opportunity that You have given me to come before You, with my brothers and sisters in You. Help me to be faithful to You as You have ALWAYS been faithful to me.”
