A Faithful Man

In Apples of Gold by Nina Gaus1 Comment

Most men will proclaim every one his own goodness: but a faithful man who can find?- Proverbs 20:6

Mine eyes shall be upon the faithful of the land, that they may dwell with me: he that walketh in a perfect way, he shall serve me. – Psalm 101:6

a faithful man

Who can find a faithful man?

Resolute, unshaken in his stand;

Humble, steady in his work –

No excuse to duties shirk.

Ardent is his trust in God;

Firmly treads his chosen sod.

Every chance to serve his Lord;

He will take, led by God’s Word.

He will lead his family;

Love them, help them happily.

His example shines the light,

On the path of truth, so bright!

Constant is his goal to bring

Others to the King of Kings;

Souls he’s rescued from sin’s fate,

He yearns to meet at Heaven’s gate.

Devotion to a faithful Lord,

Bids Him gladly bear his sword;

For he longs to use each day,

Eternal crowns to store away.

Though at times he feels alone,

And carries burdens on his own –

He toils on in the Savior’s field,

Resisting his own desires to yield.

Though some will lack his earnest drive,

This will not douce his zeal inside;

Loyal to his caring friend,

Jesus – who’s with him to the end.

For our God sees his faithful men –

Those on whom he can depend

To stay the course, in sun or rain;

To give their all for Heaven’s gain.

Will faithfulness be found in you?

When duty calls, will you come too?

Or will excuse and other plans,

Delay God’s search for a faithful man?

Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful. – I Corinthians 4:2

A faithful man shall abound with blessings… – Proverbs 28:20a

    Wonderful message to your poem, Nina. Makes me very thankful for the many faithful men and leaders I have in my life. And the verse you mentioned in Proverbs is so true… real faithful men are humble and rarely toot their own horn :o) Thanks for writing it!
