Sermon Title: Cultivated In His Character: Faithfulness

Scripture: Galatians 5:2223

  

This week, Pastor David continued the sermon series, Cultivated In His Character, with a message from Galatians 5:22–23. 

 

Specifically, he noted:

 

1.    God Is Always Faithful To Keep His Word To You

2.    God Is Always Faithful To Finish What He Has Begun In You

3.    God Is Always Faithful To Empower His Followers To Live Faithful Lives

 

 Going Deeper:

 

  • God is faithful to see the project of your salvation through to the end (Philippians 1:6). Your salvation from A to Z is in the faithfulness of our great God. How can you resist your need to control everything in your world and rest in these truths this week?
  • Pastor David shared that our salvation is God’s work through and through. You cannot lose what God is responsible for; it is not yours to lose. What circumstances in your life cause you to doubt the security of your salvation? How can you embrace Paul’s words to the church in Rome (Romans 8:37-39)?
  • In light of our faithful God dwelling in us, we are called to live faithful lives empowered by the Holy Spirit. How would you answer these questions to gauge who or what you are faithful to:
    • Are you living a life faithful to the word of God?
    • Are you living a faithful prayer life?
    • Are you living a life faithful with the gifts that God has given you in your time and your resources?

Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen. ~ Ephesians 3:20–21
