The fruit of the Spirit is faithfulness.Galatians 5:22b

Faithfulness flows from the fruit of the Spirit’s vine. It is the ability to stay the course. Faithfulness is a personal resolve to stay committed. Faithfulness feels a compelling call from Christ to stay put in a career, especially when it’s not easy, knowing perseverance leads to righteous rewards. Invite the Lord’s faithfulness to you to facilitate your faithfulness to Him, His call,  and your service to others.

Are you at the crossroads of a commitment? Will you remain faithful, even though it is unfair and hard? It is easier to follow Jesus when He heals and forgives. It is harder to be a dedicated disciple when you are persecuted for your faith and demeaned for doing good. However, because Christ remained faithful to the cross, on the cross and after the cross, you remain faithful to bear your cross for the cause of Christ and kingdom advancement. Make sure to keep your eyes on Jesus, not on the unfaithfulness of others. A friend’s unfaithfulness, even betrayal, is your opportunity to remain faithful. Scared friends may scatter and an insecure family member may gossip, but you still model loyalty to those you love. Love is faithful in the face of unfaithfulness.

Make today a day of impact for the Kingdom.
