Christian Character: Faithfulness, Part 2

Faithfulness is a belief in God and His Word which is seen in our lives as we then live based upon that belief even if it is hard or doesn’t make sense. This will be seen in a person’s speech, attitudes, and behavior. Our faithfulness is seen in our adherence to the truth.

“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

“For by it the elders obtained a good report.

“Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.” Hebrews 11:1-3

Imagine a tire on an automobile. How does the tire “adhere” to the vehicle? Usually 5 lug nuts attach the tire to the vehicle. How is the tire’s “faithfulness” seen? As it day after day remains attached to the vehicle keeping the vehicle moving down the road. Imagine that the vehicle represents us and our lives and the tire represents God and His Truth. What adheres God’s Truth to the vehicle of our lives? The lug nuts of faith.
