Will You Remain Faithful to Your Promise?

I was researching a topic yesterday and came across a book in which the author had chosen to seek to debunk his earlier research and earlier book. The first book had been written from a Biblical foundation and now the author recants both his initial research and his faith in God. What I found interesting was the number of individuals who sided with the author and cheered him on for his choice of abandoning his faith.

We live in a world where much spiritual darkness and blindness exists. John 3:17-21 reminds us, “For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. {18} Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son. {19} This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. {20} Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that his deeds will be exposed. {21} But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what he has done has been done through God.”

I believe there is great value in a step I took soon after I said Yes to the relationship with God through His Son, Jesus. That step was to request for God’s help to stay true to the relationship with Him all of my life. It is not enough to start the life of faith in God, we must choose to stay true to our commitment and faithful to our loyalty. Otherwise we will find ourselves in darkness. 1 John 1:7 tells us, “But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin” (NIV). Will you remain faithful to your promise?
