2 Timothy 2:13

“If we are faithless, He remains faithful, for He cannot deny Himself.” (NASB)


“If we are faithless (apisteo: believing not, to betray a trust, unfaithful, disbelieving), He remains faithful (pistos: believing, true, sure, reliable), for He cannot deny (anemia: refuse, disregard his own interests or prove false to) Himself.”


Even when we are unfaithful and untrustworthy, He remains always faithful for He cannot disregard and refuse Himself which indwells us.


What comfort it is to know that God will never abandon or disown you! He doesn’t possess faithfulness, He is faithful by definition. Even when you choose to go your own way and leave God out of the picture, He doesn’t do likewise. He is forever true and reliable. May this never mean that we take it lightly and abuse this fact, but instead, may we desire even more so to be deemed faithful in His eyes.
