Advent 2015 December 3 - Faithful

Advent should make us look deeper into the wholeness of the being of God.  We often say the nature of God, but that seems like an oxymoron. We often say his character but that emphasizes the human-likeness, and there are only limited ways that we can compare our character to God’s. 

Advent speaks to the faithfulness of God.  Faithfulness to the prophesies in particular and to the promises in general. Faithfulness also personally.

Faithfulness of God is mentioned hundreds of times in the Bible.  It is a part of his wholeness of being that we cannot compare to the faithfulness of man, which is more likely the fickleness of man.  An entirely faithful being is rather outside our imaginations.
