I am a steward of the "mysteries of God". (1 Cor. 4:1-2) We are stewards over everything God gave us. The work God called us to do, is work He needs done. Stewards are to be found "faithful". Faithfulness can't be taught, it is caught.

What is Faithfulness?
- We are not good. God is good! We should honor God with our lives and not use rationale to excuse our shortcomings.
"Most men will proclaim each his own goodness, But who can find a faithful man?" Prov. 20:6
- We should endeavor or strive to be "faithful".
"And the things that you have heard from me among many witnesses, commit these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also." 2 Tim. 2:2
"And the [instructions] which you have heard from me along with many witnesses, transmit and entrust [as a deposit] to reliable and faithful men who will be competent and qualified to teach others also." 2 Tim. 2:2 (AMP)

- One aspect of faithfulness is to be "Full of Faith".

Faithful Dr. Allan Bagg

• Transforming into Faithfulness:
(1) "Know when to keep your mouth shut."
Whether in counseling/leadership/home, some things are confidential. We don't keep secrets but some things are private.
Example given: When we are told a secret to keep but revealing the 'secret' to one person we can 'trust', but we all have one person who we 'trust'...before we know, we all know the 'secret'. "If the person you are talking to, is not really part of the solution, then keep your mouth shut."
"A talebearer reveals secrets, But he who is of a faithful spirit conceals a matter." Prov. 11:13

(2) "Minister strength to your Pastor/Church/Home Cell."
Speak to build up and edify and declare the Word of God. We represent the authority over us and we promote the vision we are under.
"If you want to kill a man's vision, give him another." - Dr. Allan Bagg
"A wicked messenger falls into trouble, But a faithful ambassador brings health." Prov. 13:17

(3) "Always speak the Truth."
Walk in Truth. A lie is connected to the "Father of lies." (satan) If a person does not abide in the truth, then they are serving the Kingdom of darkness.
"A faithful witness does not lie, But a false witness will utter lies." Prov. 14:5

(4) "The Faithful doesn't have to proclaim his/her goodness but it will be revealed. He/She is humble." Acknowledge that God is doing the work. Being humble is, "submitting yourself under the almighty God." 1 Peter 5:6
"Most men will proclaim each his own goodness, But who can find a faithful man?" Prov. 20:6

Rewards of Faithfulness
To be continued next week...
