Daily Devotion: Everyone Has Their Own Definition of Faithfulness

Bible Reading: Revelation 2:1-10

Key Verse: Verse 10 – “Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.

Key Word: Be thou faithful unto death

We would all agree that God commands us to be faithful to Him. The thing that I have found is that we don’t all define faithfulness the same way.

Faithful is:
  • Doing what I am supposed to do,
  • Doing it when I am supposed to,
  • Doing it the way I am supposed to, and
  • Doing it that way all the time.
Don’t make excuses for not doing what you are supposed to do. Don’t make excuses for not doing it when you are supposed to do it. Don’t make excuses for not doing it right.

Norman Geisler, as a child, went to a VBS because he was invited by some neighbor children. He went back to the same church for Sunday School classes for 400 Sundays. Each week he was faithfully picked up by a bus driver. Week after week he attended church, but never made a commitment to Christ. Finally, during his senior year in High School, after being picked up for church over 400 times, he did commit his life to Christ. What if that bus driver had given up on Geisler at 395? What if the bus driver had said, “This kid is going nowhere spiritually, why waste any more time on him?”

What to do:
✞ Be faithful to God.
