Man of God Top 10 – #6 Faithful

Faithful: steadfast in affliction or allegiance; firm in adherence to promises or in observance of duty.

Men of God are faithful.  First and foremost, faithful to God.  We should be steadfast in our allegiance to God.  God is faithful to us, no matter what, even though we don’t deserve it.  How much more does God deserve our faithfulness.

Men of God are faithful in prayer.  “Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.” Romans 12:12  We should be firm in our daily prayers.  Pray for everything, don’t ask for everything, pray.  When you have a decision to make, pray.  When you are feeling down, sick, stagnant; pray.  When you are driving, eating, or doing anything that doesn’t require your full attention; pray.  “Pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers.” Ephesians 6:18  “Pray continually” 1 Thessalonians 5:17

Men of God are faithful to their wives and families.  God has made you the head of your family, act like it.  Be steadfast in you allegiance to your family and firm in observance of your duty to them.   Be faithful to your wives, don’t go looking for someone else and don’t let problems go unresolved, talk (I know that is hard for some of us guys, but just do it!).  Be faithful to your children.  They need a father who is strong, who will show them the way to live.

Be faithful out there men.  Don’t get distracted by something else that is easy or appealing, but stay strong and faithful to following God, praying in all things, and to your family.
