True to Self

Pastor Victor commences his new sermon series, “The Faithfulness of God” with a passage from 2 Timothy 2: 8-13. In his farewell letter, an imprisoned Apostle Paul encourages the younger missionary Timothy to endure and remain faithful through the struggles he will surely face as he spreads the gospel. Paul reminds him that God is always faithful and will always keep His promises.

Presently, Christians who are struggling with their faithfulness need only look back over their lives for reassurance that God is always good. If we are honest with ourselves, we can recount times when we have not been faithful to God. However, even when we fall short the Lord remains faithful because He will never deny Himself.

By delving into God’s character, nature, and essence we can find comfort and renew our faith. As the Pastor says, God is God-ness. God is good. God is love. Remember that God sacrificed His only Son to save us. Because we are saved, He will keep His promises. God wants to love us and give us a life that is full and abundant.

Do you recall when you could not see the way? Didn’t He make a way? In your loneliest, most desolate hours, wasn’t God there? Although we may suffer, with God we can endure. We can endure because is a promise keeper. He is faithful and worthy of our trust. So, come what may, never grow weary of being true to self and faithful to God, for everlasting glory is our future.
