No More Excuses
Faithfulness is one of the most important qualities necessary for Christian service. God’s people are God’s stewards, and so we are accountable to him. Recognizing our responsibility to be faithful is an important step in the Christian journey: embracing this truth can lead to profound Christian ministry.
Are you faithful? There are some simple, and perhaps surprising, ways to find out. Biblical counselor Lou Priolo defines faithfulness and provides three tests for assessing your trustworthiness. You will be challenged by how you score! Through instruction and straightforward exercises, he helps you to turn from fear and excuses and embrace your God-given responsibilities. As you are faithful in little things, God will give you increasing opportunities to be faithful with much, much more.
“The people who make the greatest impact for Christ always have one thing in common. They’ve learned to be faithful. If you want to live all out for Christ, Lou Priolo will help you to see the importance of faithfulness, give you a clear explanation of what faithfulness looks like, motivate you to pursue faithfulness, and help you to know how to become more a faithful and fruitful person in your day-to-day life.”
—Joshua Mack, Pastor-teacher of Living Hope Church, Pretoria, South Africa
