Fruits of the Spirit- Faithfulness

The Bible tells us:

"So I want you to realize that the LORD your God is God.
He is the faithful God. He keeps His covenant for all time to come. He keeps it with those who love Him and obey His commands. He shows them His love."

Deuteronomy 7: 9

God is Faithful. Faithfulness is a part of God's character. Because He loves us, we know He will always be with us. He gives us strength and helps us when we are in trouble. He is faithful to bring joy and peace to our hearts. He loves you no matter who you are or what you have done.

God is faithful. What He says, He will do!
"The One who has chosen you is faithful.
will do all these things."

1Thessalonians 5:24

Jesus was faithful to do what His Father asked Him to do. Because He was faithful, we know God. We can pray to God and call Jesus our friend. When we know God this way, there is another gift He gives to us, Faithfulness. We can use the fruit of faithfulness to help our family and friends. We can also use this gift to be faithful to God and tell others about His great love.

A friend who can be trusted is a faithful friend. If a friend always does what he says he will do, he or she is a faithful friend. Being faithful is keeping our promises, being a loyal friend even when times get tough, being trustworthy and doing the things we said we would do. We all count on God to do what He says he will do. We can trust God. We must not forget that God wants to count on us too!
