The Two Sides Of A Faithful God


godisfaithful

This saying is trustworthy, for:

“If we have died with Him, we will also live with Him; if we endure, we will also reign with Him; if we deny Him, He also will deny us; if we are faithless, He remains faithful – for He cannot deny Himself.” (2 Timothy 2:11-13)

As faithful as Jesus is to save those who believe in Him, he is equally faithful to condemn those who do not. If He has promised a reward, He will deliver. If He has promised a curse, He will do it. To act any other way would be inconsistent with His holy, unchangeable nature. Therefore, take note of “how God is both kind and severe. He is severe toward those who disobeyed, but kind to you if you continue to trust in his kindness. But if you stop trusting, you also will be cut off.” (Romans 11:22 NLT).

For further reading: Luke 9:23-27; Romans 6:1-11; Hebrews 6:17-18
