"More Faithful Than Ever"

March 03, 2021 | By Chuck

Faithfulness is so important to me personally. I believe we should all strive for faithfulness in all aspects of our lives, especially our relationships. Every single relationship we enjoy in this life deserves faithfulness. From our relationship with God to our relationship with our spouse, faithfulness must be a priority. In fact, when a relationship suffers unfaithfulness, great heartache and pain is always present. Many times relationships are forever broken by unfaithfulness, leaving deep emotional scars to carry throughout life. Know this for sure, unfaithfulness always hurts.
Have you ever considered how God feels when His children are not faithful to Him? God gave His Only Son to death on a cross so that we could have a faithful relationship with Him. For a Christian to turn from faithfulness must grieve God in the worst way. Any Christian parent who has a child who isn’t faithful to God can speak of the constant and daily pain they feel for their unfaithful child. When you experience that pain, it’s then that you catch a small glimpse of the anguish that God feels when His children turn away from Him. When I think of the potential of causing God that kind of pain, it motivates me to be more faithful than ever.
“Be faithful unto death, and I will give you the crown of life” (Rev.2:10b).
