James 4:5 NLT Do you think the Scriptures have no meaning? They say that God is passionate that the spirit he has placed within us should be faithful to Him.

When we get born-again, our spirits become alive. Prior to our salvation, our spirits are dead. As born-again believers, our spirits (or the real us), should be devoted to God. Like a faithful husband to a wife, our spirits should be faithful to God.

Faithfulness to God means we’re doing things His way. We’re loving when we don’t feel like it, we’re forgiving, we’re giving, we’re trusting Him when we don’t understand, etc. Anything God instructs us to do in His word or through His Spirit, we should be doing. Of course we may miss the mark at times, but His grace will always welcome us back.

This is a relationship with God and any relationship requires faithfulness. We show our faithfulness to God by doing things His way instead of the world’s way.
