What if God was as faithful to you as you are to Him? Have you ever given that any thought? Faithfulness is important in every area of our lives and in every relationship of our lives.

If you love someone you like to spend time with them. You spend time in conversation with one another. You spend time sharing things with one another. You enjoy each other's company. You are faithful in your relationship with that individual.

So it is with God. If you love Him, you will want to spend time with Him. How do we do that? Well, we can spend time in His Word, we can pray, we can meditate on His Word. He often speaks through songs or music. We can even spend time with His people. We can gather with our brothers and sisters for the ministry of His Word. God speaks to us through all of these areas.

Think about this - Jesus was faithful to us all the way to the cross! He was faithful with unconditional love for each of us. That love took Him to the cross. It wasn't a pretty sight. He suffered unthinkable torture. He did that for you and me. The leaders of the day thought they took His life, but the fact of the matter is Jesus voluntarily laid down His life for you and me. He was faithful to each of us. 

I, for one, acknowledge I didn't deserve the faithfulness and sacrifice Jesus showed toward me. Then grace entered the picture.  Thank God for grace - His Grace! Grace is God's unmerited favor. That is, God giving me what I don't deserve. I didn't deserve it, but I sure am thankful for it. Again, God was faithful to me in providing His grace. He has been faithful to each of us.

The reality is, God has been much more faithful to each of us than we have been to Him. What if the roles were reversed? What if God showed the same faithfulness to you and me as we have showed to Him? What if He showed the same degree of faithfulness to us as we show to Him in our lives right now? Is that a disturbing thought? If so, what are you going to do about it?

Let's be faithful to the One who has been most faithful to us! He deserves it. We owe it to Him. If we are Christians, we have been redeemed by the shed blood of Jesus.

Jesus gave His life for us. We ought to live our lives for Him. We have been called to present ourselves as a "living sacrifice...which is your reasonable service" (Romans 12:1). Let's do! Let's live for Jesus! Let's give it all we have. If we have a God worth serving, He' worth serving wholeheartedly!

Until next time...enjoy the journey!
