He Is Faithful

Hebrews 11:8

This morning, I want us to consider a couple of words that we find in the Scriptures. They are very similar, but they do not mean the same thing.

A person can have true faith, without being truly faithful. We have a number of examples of this in Hebrews 11. This chapter deals with the faith of individuals, not their faithfulness. They were not always faithful, and neither are we!

Note: v8

(Gen 12:1) "Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will show thee:"

1. Abraham didn't leave his kindred; he took them with him.

2. Sarah laughed when the angel of God spoke of her having a child in her old age.

3. Moses was a murderer, who fled from Egypt in fear of his life.

Now, what am I trying to say here? Even people who were great in faith, were not always faithful to God. That is true today as well. Faithfulness in our society today is practically a forgotten attribute. We see unfaithfulness in nearly every aspect of daily responsibility:

Faithfulness seems to exist only when and where it will benefit the one who is being faithful. There was a time when faithfulness was expected of each citizen. Now unfaithfulness is the norm. Except when it comes to God!

I. He Is Faithful To Save

II. He Is Faithful To Sustain

III. He Is Faithful To Deliver

IV. He Is Faithful To His Promises

V. He Is Faithful To Forgive.

He is faithful...

Will you come today? Come to the One who is faithful. Come now without delay whatever the need may be. He is faithful.
