Friday Fruit–Faithfulness

ffthumbBut the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. (Galatians 5:22-23)



What does faithfulness mean? I think it speaks of honesty, commitment, and doing the right thing in the face of the easy way out.

We are told in Scriptures that God is faithful:

  • Faithful to forgive the repentant (1 John 1:8-10)
  • Faithful to help us overcome temptation (1 Corinthians 10:13)
  • Faithful in His presence (Hebrews 13:5)
  • Faithful in understanding our weakness (Hebrews 4:14-16)

Our response needs to be to build our own faithfulness:

  • We need to be faithful with our talents and wealth and time. (Matthew 25:21)
  • We need to be faithful in our beliefs, even unto death. (Revelation 2:10b)
  • We need to be faithful in our religious attendance.    (Hebrews 10:25)
  • We need to be faithful in our ministry.
  • We need to be faithful in our dealings with others.


from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked” Luke 12:48

“With great power, comes great responsibility”
