2 Timothy 2:13 - If we are faithless, He remains faithful; He cannot deny Himself.
The Apostle Paul writes to Timothy, His son in the Gospel, to inform him that he needs to entrust God's Word to faithful men who will teach others.
Timothy is to endure hardship as a Soldier himself and is then required to remind the people He is to entrust the Gospel to of this "faithful saying" that is found in vs# 11-13 of this text. If we die with Him, we shall also live with Him. 12 If we endure, we shall also reign with Him. If we deny Him, He also will will deny us. 13 If we are faithless, He remains faithful; He cannot deny Himself.
What Paul is saying to Timothy is the fact that this "faithful saying" is guaranteed of happening, it is something you can bank on.
If God is unfaithful, that means He denies Himself and scripture declares that He CAN NOT deny Himself, because faithful is who He is.
God cannot go contrary to his word nor His nature. It is impossible for God to deny Himself. Faithfulness in God will never fail, even though we at times as human fail to exercise our faith in God.
Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today and forever. His Word can not change for He and His Word is One. John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
What is sure is the fact that regardless of what we may have to suffer for Chirst, God’s promises of triumph through suffering in vs#11-12 are sure in Christ Jesus that those who endure to the end will be saved.
Also, God's warning of being lost through unbelief in vs#12b-13 is sure for those who deny Him also for He declares that "He will also deny them." God remains faithful to His Word and can not deny Himself. What He says, He will do!
Matthew 10:33-But whoever will deny Me before men, him will I also deny before My Father who is in heaven.
People of God, we are given an assurance on this morning that even when we are unfaithful, God is faithful and can not sway from it because "Faithful" is He.
Yes, our God is eternally "Faithful" in who He is, what He does and what He says. Regardless if we choose to put our faith in Him or not, God changes not!
If and when we are faithless, God is still Faithful.
Whatever you may be suffering because of Christ you have an assurance on this morning that God is and forever will be "Faithful" concerning you if you are faithful to Him for Faithful is He and He can not deny Himself.
Isaiah 40:8 The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God shall stand forever.
People of God, it is important that we put our trust and faith in God alone for He who promise is "Faithful" even when we are not.
God is faithful, and if we are faithless He will remain faithful for He cannot deny Himself.
God bless you.
