Faithfulness can only be measured by its completion.
We can't say, "well I was sort of faithful." Its like saying " I was faithful to my wedding vows until I got divorced."
The only way to live a faithful life for God is by knowing God. I've been with my wife for 30 years. I know my wife. I've learned what pleases her, what makes her angry and what she expects from me. I trust her, I know she loves me.
I've been a follower of Christ for 37 years. We've been through some stuff, but He has been faithful. He knows me I trust Him. I've gotten to know Him through his Word, not a one paragraph story like this, but through sitting down and reading and studying his Word. I gotten to know him through prayer, talking AND listening to him.
Do you know Jesus? You can't be faithful in attitude to someone you don't know.
"You cant' please God if your faithless, because to get close to God you have to believe that He is real and that he rewards those who search for Him."
