Faithfulness comes from good stock. If ever a word had good parents, impressive grandparents, and sterling ancestors, it is faithfulness. That's because faithfulness comes from God Himself.
God. The God who made a covenant with
Abraham and said, "I will be faithful to you." God. The same God who
made a covenant with Moses and the Israelites and said, "I will be
faithful to you." God. The very God who made a covenant with the entire
world by sending Jesus Christ in order to say, "In Him, I am faithful to
you." God is faithful. That means God keeps His word. God does what He
says He will do. He makes good on His promises. God is true even when His
people are not. Faithfulness is an old, old word. Faithfulness is a good word.
It is God's word.
