I Corinthians 1:9 begins with a beautiful promise: “God is faithful...”
This simple phrase is so familiar to us as Christians that we seem to use it flippantly. Our righteousness is as filthy rags the Bible says; but God as a perfect Being said that He will stay faithful to sinful creatures!
We don’t truly realize the soveriegnty of these glorious words:
We don’t deserve His grace, yet still, He faithfully blesses us.
We don’t deserve forgiveness, yet God is faithful to forgive.
We don’t deserve His mercy, yet He has faithful compassion.
We don’t deserve any of God’s promises: yet He is faithful in keeping them.
We don’t deserve redemption, yet God was faithful and sent His Son as He said He would.
We don’t deserve happiness, yet God is faithful in supplying joy.
And through the many times we ignored God and His callings: He is faithful to answer us.
And through all the trials in life when we turned away from Him: God said that He will never leave us, nor forsake us!
Even when we aren’t faithful: God. Is. Faithful.
