  3. Faithfulness Faith and faithfulness are two different things.

  4. Faithfulness Steadfast in affection or in allegiance. Firm in adherence to promises or in observing in some duty. True to the fact / to a standard;

  5. Synonyms commitment, allegiance, attachment, dedication, devotion, constancy, fidelity, loyalty, steadfastness.

  6. Unfaithful person disloyal, fickle, traitorous, perfidious, recreant.

  7. Faithful person Unwavering adherence to a person, thing, promise. Firm rejection of betrayal. And against influences that would weaken his resolve, and defends the cause that he stands for.

  8. The Faithfulness of God Man is in the class and image of God, so God expects him to have the same attributes & characteristics as Him, and live that way in this earth. He is the mankind of God and reflects the character of God in the Earth.

  9. God built my character through his word and that's what he expects to see in me. He built himself into me and the Bible says I am an offspring of His Holiness. This is the reality Jesus came to accomplish and make it possible. This cuts me out of religion because I have the same nature with God.

  10. Why should I consider being faithful? Because that's who God is. He is faithful. It is in His personality and he wants that in me. This is the beautiful thing about him.

  11. God is faithful and faithfulness is from & of God. That is what makes me attractive and beautiful because I manifest his personality. It's like love. When you are loved, it's wonderful.

  12. Deuteronomy 7:9 - He is faithful to His word. There is None greater than him and he can look up to no other. So he is faithful to His word. That's what he gives to us. He gives us his word and We hold him to his word. He loves when I study the word because there, He is able to prove his character. That's why I have to know the Word. I can't take him at his word until i know it.

  13. Psalm 36:5; Psalm 119:89; Lamentations 3:23; 1 Corinthians 1:9; Hebrews 10:24; Keep saying it, don't stop talking it because the one who made the promise is faithful. He is reliable, unwavering and dependable. He is committed to his Word: He said it and he will do it. And unfaithful person cannot be trusted.

  14. - 1 Corinthians 10:13 - 1 Timothy 5:24, 2 Thessalonians 3:3, 2 Timothy 2:13, I can trust God. When things happen that I don't like, I must remember that God is faithful to His Word. The word of God means nothing until i accept. God talks, works and is active all the time. Until I hear God talking and until I am conscious of the things he says, His word, won't mean anything to me. Instruction have the Holy Spirit to connect with Him and act on His Word. When I connect and act on that word, He is faithful to His Word and it becomes a testimony. He proves his character of faithfulness in my life. God remains faithful whether or not I believe. The fact that the word didn't work for you doesn't question his faithfulness.

  15. Faithfulness of Jesus Christ, the Son of God Faithfulness: Commitment with purpose of positive distinction. (meditate on it) – I am not just committed to something. I am committed with purpose. So my character of faithfulness separates me from others and wins. It's not just stickability. There is a definiteness. Jesus had a commitment with clarity and distinction. We are not just following Jesus blindly. We are committed to him with purpose with positive distinction on the basis of our faithfulness.

  16. Faithfulness is a decision. It's not just something that happens in my life. I know that I am faithful. Hebrews 3:1-2 - Jesus Christ was faithful to God - Him that appointed Him; as Moses also was faithful in God's house. I have the character of Christ so I stand faithful. In everything that God asks me to do in His house, I am faithful.

  17. Hebrews 2:17; I have to be faithful at work, at home, in my academics, ministry and relationships at all levels. I am expected to be unwavering and committed like a soldier because I am a soldier Christ and he expects it. - Revelation 1:5; Revelation 3:14; .

  18. Faithful men and women have always been the key to God's program in the earth. Moses was described as faithful to bring the people of Israel out of Egypt and guide them in the way of truth. Prior to Him was Abraham.

  19. Faithfulness of the man Abraham. Nehemia 9:7-8; - God found Abraham to be faithful. Genesis 18:19; He stayed on track. Galatians 3:9; if I am not faithful, God can't do much with me. Until I am there he can't do much with my life.

  20. Faithfulness of the man David 1 Samuel 22:14; David was faithful. And he stood on that to make a case with God against Saul when he was a fugitive. David was aware of his faithfulness.

  21. Faithfulness of the men Tychicus, Epaphras, Timothy, Onesimus, Silvanus, Saints at Colosse. - Ephesians 6:21; Colossians 4:7; Colossians 1:7; 1 Corinthians 4:17; Colossians 4:9; 1 Peter 5: Colossians 1: 2

  22. Faithfulness of Daniel Daniel 6:4-5; no errors nor faults were found in him as he was trustworthy, neither corrupt nor negligent. They were so determined to get him they made a law against the God of Daniel and yet he stayed true and faithful to His God. His faithfulness had direction. We know what we are faithful to and about. Daniel was faithful in every way to the government until they went counter direction with His God. Then he stood for his God.

  23. There is a principle for Daniel's faithfulness. 2 Corinthians 8:1; the primary devotion is first to the Lord and then to the Saints. If we are faithful to God's word, then we are faithful to God. We become stubborn against anything that is not of God and inconsistent with His Word. That's the principle that governs our faithfulness.

  24. Anyone that remains faithful to God will surely suffer persecutions. From family, bosses, the government or what and what not. But remember that my commitment is to God and never let it change. My salvation became a reality when i confessed the lordship of Jesus over my life and he will share with no one. And he leads me for his name sake. There will be a time of trouble in the last days. But never give in or let go. Don't deny the Son of God. If I am persecuted for his name sake then I am blessed. Remember Daniel in the lion's Den. Shadrac, Meshac & Abed-Nego in the firy furnace. Be strong in growing heart and be faithful.

  25. Faithfulness of Uriah, Zechariah, Unani, Shelemiah, Zadok, Pediaha, Hanan Isaiah 8:2; Nehemia 7:1; Nehemia 13:13; Fear God above all men. When you want to do something important, get people who are faithful. The "sent" (those who were sent of God) is always faithful, but the "went" (those who just went) will not always be faithful. One is faithful and then sent.

  26. 2 Timothy 2:1 - The gospel is committed to those who are faithful to it and theynpass it on to the next generation and to others also. The message is always committed to faithful men and women. Faithfulness is in my spirit.

  27. I chose to be faithful. It's a conscious choice. 1 Corinthians 4:2 - Galatians 5:22 - Faith is a product of my spirit because the original word that I have heard the first time stays in my spirit. If I never had faithfulness I would never get it. I have the nature of God so I have the faithfulness of God in my spirit. I must let it have its way in my life. I choose to be faithful.

  28. - Numbers 12:6; I must be faithful in My service in the house of God, 2) faithful in using the gifts and abilities that God has given to me, 3) faithfulness in specific assignments the Lord gives me, 4) faithful in the use of material and financial blessings the Lord has granted me, 5)faithfulness in evangelizing my world and winning souls ( BE A PARTNER WITH RHAPSODY OF REALITIES because God is counting on us to take this gospel around the world. We have over 160 translations with people working night and day. We must give everything for it. We are partners in bringing the message around the world.)

  29. 6) Faithful in ministering to one another, 7) faithful at work and in my business environment. I must become a positive contributor and be full of ideas. I must become trusted.

  30. CONCLUSION - Proverbs 14:5; Proverbs 20:6; Proverbs 11:13; Blessings & Advantages of Faithfulness - Proverbs 28:20; Proverbs 3:3; Psalm 31:23; Accuracy in our communication of the gospel is very vital. Ensure to read the bible slowly and say what is actually there so as not to mislead others. Luke 12:42-44; Luke 16: 10-12; Luke 19:12-26 Revelation 17:12 - This is the final report for all those who are faithful. They will be with the Lord.  When you are faithful in little things, God gives you greater things to handle. He uses my faithfulness in little things in the earth to measure my faithfulness in the world which is to come. Whatever the Lord has given you, use it for his glory.

  31. There are terrible consequences for unfaithful men. Faithfulness is a product if the human spirit. Faithfulness should be expressed in all that we do. It took faithfulness for men to translate the bible from the original script, or the Rhapsody of Realities in many languages. They are moving the gospel forward and only faithful men and women will move the gospel to the end of the Earth.
