Day 21: The Faithfulness of God

Romans 3:3-4 :

For what if some were without faith? Will their lack of faith nullify the faithfulness of God? May it never be! Yes, let God be found true, but every man a liar. As it is written,

“That you might be justified in your words,
and might prevail when you come into judgment.”

Paul makes it clear that just because the Jews haven’t been faithful to God doesn’t mean that God won’t be faithful to them. This is a serious problem in the theological world today. Paul has much more to say about this subject later in the letter.

The simple fact is that God cannot ever tell a lie and will always keep His promises. There is no one like God in our world. The fact that He never lies about anything at all makes God very different than any other person. We can count on the fact that everything God says is true.

This is another reason why the words in the Bible are unlike any others. If God is always truthful and God wrote the Bible then the Bible must always be correct and true. It shouldn’t come as a surprise when people say that the words that God had these Jews write were perfect and true because God claims to be perfect and He claims to have written the Bible through them. It would be a reason to not believe the Bible if it contained errors. Why would anyone believe a book that requires you to change your mind while at the same time knowing that it contains things that aren’t necessarily true? That is why Christians believe that the Bible doesn’t contain any errors in the original form given to the prophets.

Isn’t it a great thing to know that the world was made by a real person who is always truthful? This is another reason why it is so great to be a Christian.
