The Faithfulness of Jesus

“If we are faithless, he will remain faithful, for he cannot disown himself." (2 Timothy 2:13)

This Christian life is a living bond with our Savior Jesus. Our connection with Jesus is so close that often the Bible refers to it as being “in Christ.” “Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come”  (2 Corinthians 5:17). This bond with Jesus does not mean I lose my personhood or my identity, but it does mean that Jesus Himself is active and involved in my life. It is a partnership with my Savior where I live by faith.

I wish I could say that Jesus Christ in me makes me perfect in all my choices and decisions, but sadly that is not the case. There are times when I operate without regard for His presence in my life. Instead of putting His teaching into practice, I choose my plans and my ways. Living my way, rather than His way is a failure of trust. I choose not to be faithful to Jesus; instead, I trust my own devices.

Such poor decisions lead me down a troubled road. Faithlessness, guilt and more bad decisions corrode my connection with Jesus and threaten to wreck my future. But the key verse above reminds me that even then, Jesus will not disown me. His faithfulness in my life does not depend on mine. He remains faithful. He does not withdraw His presence. Even when I fail, Jesus is faithful.

Question: Is there a distance between me and Jesus that needs to be fixed?

Challenge: If I do not feel close to Jesus, the problem is on my side of the connection. He is always ready for me to come to Him.

Prayer: Thank you Jesus that you are faithful. To know that you hold me, gives me strength to walk your path.
