1 Corinthians 4:5 (NLT)
“So be careful not to jump to conclusions before the Lord returns as to whether or not someone is faithful. When the Lord comes, He will bring our deepest secrets to light and will reveal our private motives. And then God will give to everyone whatever praise is due.”
Faithfulness is one of God’s chief characteristics. It refers primarily to His reliability in keeping His promises. Faithfulness also stands as the hallmark of the life of the Christian, as we imitate the faithfulness of Christ. God wants us to be people who are dependable and capable of being trusted. God is faithful and rewards faithfulness.
But, you see, faithfulness is becoming a rare commodity in our generation. Many pulpits are manned by men who are unfaithful to their wives; many civil servants are unfaithful to their employer-the government; many politicians are unfaithful to the people who voted them to power. If you are not faithful to your wife, husband, employer, employee, neighbor or even the government, you can’t be faithful to your God.
From today’s passage, we see that faithfulness is contingent on what we do when nobody is around. This is what God looks at in rewarding faithfulness. My question for you today is: do you have deep secrets which when brought to light would make you bow your head in shame? Or do you have private motives which if revealed would make people run away from you? If you do, then you are not a faithful person in the eye of God. Deal with those secret sins or they will deal with you later on. Remember that the Lord Jesus will return one day to reward those who will remain faithful to the end (see 1 Corinthians 4:5).
Prayer: Pray that the Lord will help you to remain faithful to Him and to everyone around you.
