Jesus was faithful to the Father in His mission to the world.  Since He was on a mission of rescue, His faithfulness to the Father proved to be faithfulness to us.  Our faithfulness to the Lord is also faithfulness to all of those in our sphere of influence.  We can’t let the Lord down without letting someone else down.  Our influence is far more reaching in the present and the future than we have yet imagined.  He has been faithful to us, let us be faithful to Him, and thus to all those whom we love.

“But know that the LORD has set apart the faithful for himself; the LORD hears when I call to him.”  Psalm 4:3 (NRSV)
