HE is FAITHFUL

HE is FAITHFUL

“Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for He who promised us is faithful. ” (Hebrews 10 : 23)
Jesus was faithful to his Father. He was faithful to his disciples. He faithfully completed His mission at great cost to Himself. He is faithful to His followers in the present age.
How reassuring to know that He is faithful to us. “He will remain faithful ” (2 Timothy 2 :13). “But the Lord is faithful and He will strengthen and protect you. ” (2 Thessalonians 3 : 3).
Jesus commended faithfulness. On more than one occasion He told parables in which a master commended his servant with the words ‘Well done, good and faithful servant’.
We, His followers, are exhorted to be faithful to our Lord. It is a great encouragement to know that He is faithful to us. Jesus said of His followers. “I know them and they follow Me… no-one can snatch them out of My hand. ” (John 10 : 27-28).
Faithfulness brings its own rewards. “A faithful man will be richly blessed. ” (Proverbs 28 : 20). And we are helped in the knowledge that Jesus was and is faithful. “God who has called you into fellowship with His Son Jesus Christ our Lord, is faithful. ” (1 Corinthians 1 :9).

Lord when we try your patience sore.
As we’ve so often done before.
Do silly things You can’t ignore,
You’re still our Faithful Lord.
We are but sheep, Great Shepherd King,
And prone to go a-wandering.
Your voice is heard gently calling
Good Shepherd, Faithful Lord.
We would be faithful Lord to You.
There’s so much work for us to do.
You help us to be faithful too.
You’re still our Faithful Lord.
