Continue Faithful in 2014
Faithful Continuance in 2014
Well another year has passed and we have come to 2014.
Our theme for last year was “Simply trust” and without boring you with the details in the case of our family and church at least we have had lots of opportunity to learn to trust God last year. Over and over again God has proved that He is faithful in all things.
As we heard from Brother Mark Thren last Sunday evening God is perfecting us so He wants usto be faithful as He is. There is never even a second when God is not faithful to us. Even if we sin the Bible says in I John 1:9 that God is faithful.
We have no idea what may happen in the next year. If we could see all the bad that may happen we would probably give up and turn away from God, but even if we did,God would continue faithful. The Lord has promised that He will return to“receive us unto Himself” and even though He has tarried His coming in 2013,the promise of His coming is still just as faithful. Wouldn’t it be a disgrace if The Lord came back and caught us being unfaithful!
Paul encouraged God’s faithful servant Timothy to: Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee. (1Tim. 4:16).
We know that “save thyself” here has to do with shame and trouble because Timothy was already a believer.
God wants us to CONTINUE FAITHFUL until Jesus comes. He may come in 2014 or He may not
But continue thouin the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of,
knowing of whomthou hast learned them;
II Timothy 3:14
