VIII. MAIN BODY:

A. A promise fulfilled by JESUS faithfulness not ours

John 1:16 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

From his abundance we have all received one gracious blessing after another.

Ephesians 1:3 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ.

1. It's not us but GOD fulfills everything for us, we are blessed because CHRIST is faithful and obedient to GOD, the Father until death.

Philippians 2:8 (New Century Version)

And when he was living as a man, he humbled himself and was fully obedient to God, even when that caused his death—death on a cross.

Galatians 2:20 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

My old self has been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me. So I live in this earthly body by trusting in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.

Colossians 1:27 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

For God wanted them to know that the riches and glory of Christ are for you Gentiles, too. And this is the secret: Christ lives in you. This gives you assurance of sharing his glory.

2 Corinthians 5:5 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

God himself has prepared us for this, and as a guarantee he has given us his Holy Spirit.

Ephesians 1:14 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

The Spirit is God’s guarantee that he will give us the inheritance he promised and that he has purchased us to be his own people. He did this so we would praise and glorify him.

Isn't GOD Wonderful and Good ALL the time to us, He already guaranteed our blessings by the HOLY SPIRIT in us, we already have the inheritance intended for us. It's guaranteed. When man guarantees something, it is sure to fail, but when GOD guarantees something, Heaven and Earth will pass away but His Words will never pass away.

B. Because JESUS is Faithful even if we're faithless or unfaithful.

2 Timothy 2:13 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

If we are unfaithful, he remains faithful, for he cannot deny who he is.

GOD's promises is not based on our faithfulness, effort, strength, weaknesses, and loyalty to Him, but it's based on CHRIST's Faithfulness, so step back and accomplish greater things for GOD because it's His Life at stake here, it's His Reputation at stake here, not ours. The promises are not based on man's stability or ability but on GOD's.
