BIBLE IN ONE YEAR
Hosea 3-5; Romans6:15-7:1-6; Psalm 88:1-9
Without any argument, part of the spiritual intelligence to be possessed by every child of God is the understanding that everything we do or become in the Hand of the Almighty God is by His Spirit. The Holy Spirit has been given to us to help us in our Christian walk and He does this effectively by propagating His fruit in our hearts.
One of the fruit of the Spirit to be considered today is FAITH. The Spirit’s fruit of faith is needed to be ingrained into the life of every believer because of the way many people are turning away from the way of Truth. The spirit of the last days has caught up with many Christians already. For a better understanding, some Bible versions use “faithfulness” instead of “faith” as it appears in the International Standard Version : “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness…”
The New English Translation and some others also employ the usage of “faithfulness”. Faithfulness, as used by Apostle Paul with reference to the fruit of the Spirit, is the quality of being reliable, dependable, loyal and trustworthy towards God and man. God is still frantically looking for faithful men who will so much be committed to the Kingdom service.
Men who are willing to spend and be spent for the Kingdom’s sake. These men will not deny God for any mundane gains neither will they turn back under any heat or pressure from the enemy’s camp. They are faithful in and out. Are you faithfully following and serving your God? Our memory verse today is highly instructive.
God could vouch for Moses’ faithfulness. Can God say same of you? Faithfulness is also essential in our relationship and dealings with our brethren and the people around us. They should be able to trust and rely on us in every aspect. It is the Spirit of God that works faithfulness in us. Open your life to Him so that He can do just that in you.
