"And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war." Revelation 19:11
IN JESUS TODAY!
"Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his Lord hath made him ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season?" Mathew 24:45 Lets start by answering this question! Jesus is the first Faithful and True, he has always been faithful to his Father and to us! His commandments are faithful and true, as it is written, "All thy commandments are faithful:" Psalm 119:86 There is a great reward to being faithful, being faithful has great influence upon our position in this life, and in our life that is to come. When we are found faithful God will set us in charge of his purposes and over areas of his household. What is it that we should know a friend or a co-worker that is faithful, always showing up to work or to help when they are needed, and can be counted on at all times? Should we wonder why they do well? Faithful is extremely valuable, far exceeding wisdom and talent! To be faithful and true is better than being strong and wise. Being faithful is the key to being with Jesus, as we read, "These shall make war with the Lamb and the lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of Lords and King of Kings: AND THEY THAT ARE WITH HIM ARE CALLED, AND CHOSEN, AND FAITHFUL." Revelation 17:14
Again, those that are with Jesus are called, and chosen, and faithful! Because Jesus is faithful and true, we are expected to be faithful and true, there is no compromise to this, in order for us to reign with Jesus and to rule with him, we must be found faithful. Perfection is for Jesus, there is no one perfect except him! However, we can be faithful, staying the course, and persevering through life's challenges by his grace!
