even when i’m not: since my conversion, one of the reoccurring themes in my life has been the faithfulness of God, even when I am unfaithful. I often find myself running from God to wallow in my filthy pride, and then remember what God has done for me, and that makes what I have done in rebellion against him look worse, (which it is). I plan to write a blog post telling you some specifics about how God has been faithful to me, but first I show some things others have said on this subject.“How refreshing, then, how unspeakably blessed, to lift our eyes above this scene of ruin, and behold One who is Faithful, faithful in in all things, faithful at all times…………..This Quality is essential to His being, without it He would not be God. For God to be unfaithful would be to act contrary to his nature, which were impossible.”
Arthur W. Pink, The Attributes of God.
And one of my personal favourite writers:
“You may greatly comfort yourself that you have an unchangeable friend in Christ Jesus. Faithfulness is rightly viewed as a most necessary and desirable qualification in a Friend.
“You may learn how excellent His friendship is from His manner of treating His disciples on earth. He graciously treated them as a tender father treats His children, meekly instructing them, most friendly conversing with them, and being ready to pity them, help them, and forgive their infirmities. And then you may considered this doctrine, that he is the same today as He was then, and always will be.”
Think about who Jesus is, and how He longs to love you each day. How might you apply what the New Testament reveals about to your relationship with him?*
Jonathan Edwards, The Best of Jonathan Edwards.
“Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.” Hebrews 13:8
“Know therefore that the Lord Thy God, He is God, the faithful God.” Deut. 7:9
