What sort of fan are you?

Being “faithful,” means that we are “there,” in good times and bad. We know from a myriad of passages in the Bible that God IS faithful to us. How faithful is our loyalty to Him? Read below about the life of Joseph.

Turning Point Dr. David Jeremiah - Wednesday, March 27, 2019 - Fairweather or Faithful?
  
Moreover it is required in stewards that one be found faithful. 1 Corinthians 4:2
  
Most of us know what a fairweather fan is—the team supporter who supports the team only under one condition: a winning record. If the team is on a losing streak, the fairweather fan will likely stay home. The opposite of a fairweather fan is a faithful fan.

The biblical equivalent of a faithful fan is a steward—one who has been commissioned by an authority to carry out a specific task. And the chief characteristic of a steward is faithfulness (1 Corinthians 4:2). The steward will carry out his or her commission regardless of cost. The Bible speaks often of stewards: Joseph in Egypt, the faithful steward in Jesus’ parables, church overseers, and the apostle Paul—a steward of the grace of God. In every case, faithfulness was the chief requirement. We might ask ourselves whether we are a fairweather or a faithful fan of God’s assignments for our life. How inconvenienced are we willing to be for the sake of the Gospel?

God has made every Christian a steward of the gift of salvation by grace, a gift we are to use for His glory. Pray today to be a faithful steward.

Faithfulness in little things is a big thing.

John Chrysostom
