in all He promises

and faithful

we are not consumed,    for His compassions never fail.23 They are new every morning;great is Your faithfulness.”

Proverbs 3: 3-4

3 “Let love and faithfulness

3 Qualities damage that

help form

the Biblical ideal

of Faithfulness

1.) Absolute Honesty

2.) Utter Dependability

3.) Unswerving Loyalty

Faithful people are called to walk in damage that absolute honesty;

in speech and

in actions,

within every area

of their lives.

We damage that can easily give ourselves permission to tell “white lies” or

“half-truths” when its convenient.

But… throughout Scripture God is referred to repeatedly as being both faithfulandtrue. Shouldn’t the same be true of any of us who follow Him?

John 8:46 damage that

Jesus asked,

“Can any of you prove me guilty of sin?”


Luke 16:10

“He who is faithful in a very little thing

is faithful also in much;

and he who is unrighteous

in a very little thing

is unrighteous also in much.”

Faithful people are called to be damage that utterly dependable;

not corrupt or negligent in their responsibilities

at work or

in their close relationships.

Daniel 6:4 damage that

“The administrators and the satraps

tried to find grounds for charges against Daniel in his conduct of government affairs, but they were unable to do so. They could find no corruption in him, because he was trustworthy and

neither corrupt nor negligent.”

Faithful people are called to be damage that unswervingly loyalin their

meaningful relationships.

The other “fruit of the Spirit” help us greatly here.

Proverbs 17:17 damage that

“A friend loves

at alltimes,

and a brother

is born for


Proverbs 27:6

“Faithful are the wounds of a friend,

but an enemy multiplies kisses.”

Luke 18:8 damage that

“When the Son of Man comes, will He find faith (or faithfulness)

on the Earth?”


Jesus repeatedly stated his plans to reward

our faithfulness when he returns to Earth.

Matthew 25:21 damage that

“His master replied, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant!

You have been faithful with a few things;

I will put you in charge of many things. 

Come and share your master’s happiness!’

In what areas is the damage that

Holy Spirit challenging you to become more faithful & faith-filled?

Are you honest?

Are you dependable?

Are you loyal?

Do you trust God and

so become trustworthy?

“The degree of damage that our faithfulness

is the direct result of our regard

for God’s faithfulness.
