Daily Devotion: Christians Are Faithful

Bible Reading: Revelation 2:1-11

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 Words: be thou faithful unto death

F.B. Meyer signed many of his letters, “Yours to count on.”

Meyer also is credited with saying: “A little thing is a little thing; but faithfulness in little things is a very great thing.”

The one ability that is within each of us is the ability to be faithful: faithful to our family, faithful on our job, faithful in our church attendance, and faithful in our giving. Just be faithful!

After the tragic bombing of a marine base in Beirut in October of 1983, the steadfastness of one young soldier moved and heartened Americans back home. He had been critically wounded in the explosion of the revamped hotel where he and his fellow marines had been staying. Many of his buddies had been killed. He was covered with bandages and a jungle of tubes were attached to his body. He could not speak. Yet when he was visited by General Paul Kelly, Commandant of the Marine Corps, he indicated that he wanted to write something. Painfully, he wrote the words semper fi, a shortened form of the U.S. Marine Corps motto, Semper Fidelis, which means “Always faithful.”

What to do:

✞ Be faithful: it’s just that simple.
