“Faithful and True"

The Special of the Day… From the Orange Moon Cafe…

"Faithful and True"

     No one has ever trusted in the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ and been disappointed for do so.  And no one ever will.

   "Wherefore also it is contained in the Scripture, Behold, I lay in Zion a chief Cornerstone, elect, precious, and He that believeth on Him shall not be confounded" (I Peter 2:6).

   Regarding whatever challenges presently face us, or any we will encounter in the future, God can be trusted.  The Bible assures us of this in many affirmations.  Our Father exists as the very essence of Truth.  He cannot lie.  His faithfulness reaches unto the clouds, and His way is perfect (John 14:6; Titus 1:2; Psalm 36:5; II Samuel 22:31).  He cannot be other than who He is, and cannot act in violation of His eternally pristine integrity.  Thus, we can trust Him without reserve regarding the challenges at hand, or those to come.  "I am with thee… I will be with thee" (Isaiah 41:10; 43:2).

   Born again believers in the Lord Jesus live from God, and from His faithfulness.  Solomon called us to "Trust the Lord with all thine heart" because our Heavenly Father is completely present, involved, and reliable in our lives (Proverbs 3:5).  His standard is perfect faithfulness, from which He never veers.  Let us then view today and forevermore through the lens of Divine trustworthiness.  Our Lord will be waiting for us wherever life takes us, and He will be with us as we go.  Our destinations all glimmer with His light, and when we arrive, we will find Him as faithful as always.  Because no one has ever trusted in the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ and been disappointed for doing so.  And no one ever will...

"And I saw Heaven opened, and behold, a white horse.  And He that sat upon him was called Faithful and True."
(Revelation 19:12)

Weekly Memory Verse
   Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such a one in the spirit of meekness, considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted.
(Galatians 6:1)
