F is for Faithful

     God, who has called you into fellowship with his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, is 
faithful.  

1 Corinthians 1:9


Faithful,  according to Merriam Webster, is:  

steadfast in affection or allegiance, loyal.  Faithful implies  unswerving adherence to a person or thing or to the oath or promise by which a tie was contracted.
   
Some synonyms of faithful are: dedicated, devoted, good, steadfast, steady, true

To be the opposite of faithful you may be:  

disloyal, faithless, false, fickle, inconstant, unfaithful, untrue
 
So by English definition a faithful God is steadfast in affection.

A faithful God is faithful in allegiance.

 A faithful God is loyal.  

A faithful God has unswerving adherence to those who belong to Him.

A faithful God is not disloyal.

A faithful God is not faithless.

A faithful God is not false,

A faithful God is not fickle.

A faithful God is not unfaithful.

By Greek definition, a God who is pistos is worthy of belief, trust, or confidence.  A pistos God is true, just, and trustworthy.

Even when we are unfaithful to Him He remains faithful to us.  He cannot not be faithful.  Even when people are unfaithful, God remains faithful to you.

He's worth it.

F is for Faithful.

Peace,
Ronda

  2. I love the song "Faithful God" by Gateway Worship. It's one that just speaks great truth and gets stuck in my head...in a good way! If you don't know it it's worth finding and at lesat listening to on youtube if not buying it outright on itunes.

  3. Faithful always makes me think of the song "Faithful God" by Gateway Worship. It's a great son and filled with such truth. It's one worth listening to either by buying it in itunes or previewing it on youtube.

  4. I AM IMPRESSED that you thought the entire alphabet out in advanced! I really am, as I tend to wing it day by day.

    I love love your introduction to who you are and your faith. I believe and celebrate Jesus as God's Manifestation as a follower of the Baha'i World Faith. There can be no higher principle than His teachings of love. My faith sustains me and I so enjoyed your post.
