November 14th – 2 Timothy 2:13

2 Timothy 2:13 

Many are the wonderful characteristics of God. And one that we count on the most is His faithfulness, because we ourselves cannot be. In our human frailty, we disappoint, let down, and hurt the ones we love. But not God. He is always faithful, all of the time. Faithful to His promises, His love, and His justice. I once read God’s faithfulness described as the gold standard of everything great and good. I love that! We can rejoice because God forever remains faithful when His people are anything but. And it was out of that loving faithfulness that He sent His Son as a sin payment for the world. Once we receive Christ as our Savior, we are sealed in Him forever. And how thankful are we that  because we are clothed in the righteousness of Jesus, our Father cannot deny His name, His Word, or His truth. The truth that because of His faithfulness, “nothing will ever separate us the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 8:38–39).
