God Is Looking For Faithfulness, Not Perfection

Now concerning virgins I have no commandment of  the Lord: yet I give my judgment, as one that hath
obtained mercy of the Lord to be faithful. {
1 Corinthians 7:25}

The word, “faithful” in this Scripture means, one worthy of trust and one who can be relied on. It also means one who trusts in God’s promises.

What the word, “faithful” does not mean, is perfection. It takes faithfulness to consistently believe in God’s Word and stand on His promises, even when you don’t see the victory directly in front of you.

It takes faithfulness to be a person whom God can trust to get His job done and do what He has called
you to do in the earth.  His assignment for you, or His purpose for your life, is not based upon your walking
in perfection but upon your remaining faithful to Him, repenting and allowing God to wash you with the blood
of Jesus every time you miss it, and to remain faithful to the call He has on your life, for the gifts and callings of God are
without repentance (Romans 11:29) In other words, He won’t turn His back on you and what He’s called you to do because of a mistake, so don’t you dare turn your back on Him.

My little children, I am writing these things to you so that you may not sin. But if anyone does sin, we have an
advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous. (1 John 2:1)
