Do We Share the Fruit of Faithfulness?

Updated: Feb 8, 2023

Ladies, the Bible talks about running a race in the Christian vernacular, so using that same language, we know we need a solid character to train for our race. The Holy Spirit has given us the tools to build that solid character called spiritual gifts, talents, and the fruit of the Spirit (NKJV).

Let’s use those resources, gifts, and tools to build ourselves up for a tough race and a strong finish!

Women in the military have a long and rich history! Sometimes we believe we have unique experiences that men typically do not have. As a Christian woman and Veteran, I would say a specific time is the time of menstruation and childbearing for many women. In the Bible, God created everything, including Adam and Eve, and he wonderfully fashioned them for each other. Therefore women have always had distinct roles to play in life from men.

We will cover more ground together as we continue the Spiritual gifts series. For this study, your Bible is your compass so let it be your guide. I am excited to share this information so we can learn and grow together!

So, ladies, do you consistently add fruits to your daily Christian diet? I am not talking about the occasional fresh fruit you get when you go out to eat, and I am indeed not chatting about can fruits. Most of us grew up hearing fruits should be an essential part of our daily diet for various reasons. I am here to say we should be consuming a different fruit as Christians. Let’s eat the fruit of the Holy Spirit,

which will enrich our spiritual diets in many ways. Enjoy the fruit of faithfulness!

Here is a short explanation of faithfulness and what it looks like in our lives.


The Fruit of the Holy Spirit – What is faithfulness?

Faithfulness is steadfastness, constancy, or allegiance; it is carefulness in keeping what we are entrusted with; it is the conviction that the Scriptures accurately reflect reality. Biblical faithfulness requires belief in what the Bible says about God—His existence, His works, and His character. Faithfulness is a fruit of the Spirit; it is the result of the Spirit working in us. But the Spirit is also our seal of faithfulness. He is our witness to God’s promise that if we accept the truth about God, He will save us.


From the two short paragraphs above and below, we can better understand faithfulness while finding great Bible examples. #faithfulservants, #allegiancetoChrist, #faithinGod


The Fruit of the Holy Spirit – What is faithfulness?

Hebrews 11 gives a long list of faithful men and women in the Old Testament who trusted God. Abel’s understanding of God made his sacrifice real and authentic. Noah trusted God’s word about the coming judgment as well as God’s promise to save his family (Genesis 6-9). Abraham and Sarah believed against all evidence that they would have a child (Genesis 21:1-34). Rahab trusted God to protect her family when the Israelites destroyed Jericho (Joshua 6). Gideon’s mustard-seed faith routed an entire army (Judges 6-7).


I want to share another essential point about the fruit of faithfulness before moving forward.


The Fruit of the Holy Spirit – What is faithfulness?

Faithfulness is believing that God is Who He says He is and continuing in that belief despite the vagaries of life. Functionally, that means we trust what God says in the Bible, and not necessarily what the world or our own eyes tell us. We trust He will work out everything for good. We trust He will work His will in us. And we trust that our situation on earth is nothing compared to our future reward in heaven. The only way we can have such faith is by the Holy Spirit’s influence. He testifies to the truth and impels us to seek God. The Spirit makes us faithful.
