Who Is Faithful?

"Most men will proclaim every one his own goodness: but a faithful man who can find?" (Proverbs 20:6).

Faithfulness is like a rare and precious gem. It is difficult to find a real such gem, though there are many who will offer their virtues as a substitute.

Moses, however, was one such man. "And Moses verily was faithful in all his house" (Hebrews 3:5). So was Abraham. "So then they which be of faith are blessed with faithful Abraham" (Galatians 3:9). Moses and Abraham were full of faith in God's Word; therefore they were faithful to God's Word. The very word "faithful" means "full of faith."

God is not impressed with those who boast of themselves and their qualifications or who belittle others. "It is not good to eat much honey: so for men to search their own glory is not glory" (Proverbs 25:27). Actions speak louder than words, and it is better to let one's works speak for themselves. "Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works" (James 2:18). The rare quality of faithfulness--firm and reliable commitment to one's convictions and responsibilities, in accordance with God's Word and God's leading--is proved in practice rather than proclamation. May God help us to be faithful servants, for "it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful" (I Corinthians 4:2). It is quality, not quantity, of service that God measures. Faithfulness--not fruitfulness--is required.

There is one glorious promise regarding faithfulness--not our faithfulness, but the faithfulness of our Savior. "If we believe not, yet He abideth faithful: He cannot deny Himself" (II Timothy 2:13). "For what if some did not believe? shall their unbelief make the faith |literally, 'faithfulness'| of God without effect? God forbid: yea, let God be |found| true, but every man a liar" (Romans 3:3-4). HMM
