This weekend, we learned about God’s Faithfulness. You can watch the sermon here, and then come back to work your way through these study questions and extra resources for further study.
- Why is it important for God’s faithfulness to come from His character and not our faithfulness?
- How can we logically conclude God’s unchangeableness from the fact that God is always faithful?
- What other attribute of God allows only Him to always be faithful to His promises?
Scripture for Further Study:
2 Timothy 2:13
“If we are faithless, He remains faithful, for He cannot disown Himself.”
“God is not human, that he should lie, not a human being, that he should change his mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill?”
“Know therefore that the Lord your God is God; He is the faithful God, keeping His covenant of love to a thousand generations…”
1 Thessalonians 5:24
“The one who calls you is faithful, and he will do it.”
“Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for He who promised is faithful.”
“Because God wanted to make the unchanging nature of his purpose very clear to the heirs of what was promised, He confirmed it with an oath. God did this so that, by two unchangeable things in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled to take hold of the hope set before us may be greatly encouraged.”
