Words from the Heart for Sunday April 15th, 2018
If we are unfaithful, he remains faithful, for he cannot deny who he is.
II Timothy 2:13 (NLT)
He Remains Faithful
Faithful is a word that can always be used to describe our God! The record of Scripture shows us many times that mankind disobeyed. Even those who walked closely with their Lord failed Him and some even denied Him. But, God’s faithfulness remains unchanging. You can trust Him today!
How faithful are Canadians? Three-quarter of Canadian singles say they have never cheated in a monogamous relationship, ranking only behind the French at 79% and coming in neck-and-neck with the Brits at 74% and Americans at 73%. According to a survey conducted by social dating network, Zoosk.ca on Monogamy and Cheating, the most prevalent cheaters are the Italians, with almost 40% saying they’ve cheated while in a relationship, followed by the Danes at 34%. Zoosk polled 1350 Canadian singles.
People are so fickle. They make promises and then they so easily break them. Even those who genuinely want to keep the promises they make, too easily find that they fail to keep them. And what too often happens is that when we are unfaithful, the person we are unfaithful to responds by being unfaithful too. What a contrast to what Paul writes to his young friend Timothy in 2 Timothy 2:13, “If we are unfaithful, he remains faithful, for he cannot deny who he is.” It is impossible for God to be unfaithful. No matter how we treat Him, no matter how we fail Him and let Him down, no matter how we break His heart, God remains faithful to His people. He cannot do anything else – He is faithful by nature. This means that no matter how unfaithful you have been to Him, He is always waiting to forgive and to set your heart right before Him. That is called grace and it is the heart of the Christian message. If you have been unfaithful, ask the faithful God to forgive you and set your heart right before Him once again.
These have been words from the heart.
