Let’s ask ourselves if we are faithful in our walk with God.
Q. What is faith?
We all know the chapter on faith- Hebrews 11. Faith is the substance of things we hope for. Ephesians 2:8- the grace of God is the source of salvation through faith. Faithfulness comes after faith. It is an act of faith. We can be faithful or unfaithful. Let’s look at the life of Joseph.
Joseph is the son of Jacob and Rachel. His mother died when he was young. At the same time his brothers were jealous because he was the father’s favourite.
His older brother used to tend the flock in far away fields while Joseph carried reports for his father. This increased their anger. They wanted to kill him. He gets sold as a slave.
God blessed Joseph because he was faithful in his master’s household. When you are faithful, God gives you more. Now Joseph is unjustly put in prison.
In Gen 39:21 we see that Joseph is in charge of the prison. Then God used Joseph to rescue the whole of Egypt and his family from famine.
In Revelation 2:10 it says that if we remain faithful we will get the crown of life. We have to cling on to our faith in Jesus.
Psalm 37: 38 says- “The Lord loves the just and will not forsake the faithful ones.”
2 Thessalonians 3:3 reminds us that the Lord will strengthen and protect us from the evil one whether we are faithful or not.
No matter how tough your situation is, keep your faith in Jesus. He will get us through.
Be encouraged. We see different teams serving in church. Give yourself so that you can grow in faithfulness.
1 Cor 4:2 says that when we are entrusted with something, we should be faithful. We are serving God, not just one another. We need to be faithful in our work place as well. Sometimes we will face challenges but we need to be faithful. Be faithful in small and big. God will surely bless you.
