Consistent and Faithful

Daily Devotional2 Minutes

“Be faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life.”—Revelation 2:10 NASB

Located in Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming, Old Faithful is the most famous geyser in the world. Like other geysers, it erupts when the base of a column of water resting in the earth is vaporized by hot volcanic rock.

What distinguishes this geyser is its consistency with actions that can be predicted. It erupts on average every 75 minutes for up to 5 minutes, shooting a column of steam and hot water as high as 170 feet.

This consistency is a picture of the faithfulness God desires in our lives. He wants us to be consistent witnesses for the Gospel with words and actions consistent with what we say we believe and with the truths in the Bible. We can be sure that people are watching us to see if there are any inconsistencies in our lives.

The Bible says we need to be faithful because we will be tested and face problems. At times like these, some people yield to fear and worry. Others allow doubt to fill their lives and start giving in to compromise. But God promises great rewards for those who remain faithful. They will receive “the crown of life.”

Ask God to help you to be faithful in every circumstance. Trust in the Spirit to give you the strength, wisdom, and favor you need and to help you be a consistent witness for the Gospel.

Reflection Question: Reflect on your faithfulness to God in the past few weeks.
