Are You Faithful?
By Bobby Dockery

In his book,
Among the Missing, Robert Nash tells the remarkable story of Anna N. Fellows. One day in 1879 her husband came home to discover she had left him without a word. For 20 years there was no word or trace of Anna. Then one day her husband came home to find her in the kitchen fixing supper, as if she had never been gone. She refused to explain where she had been, and somehow they settled down to try to revive their home life. But after three years Anna left again—this time she never returned…
No one would think of using the word faithful to describe her behavior. Obviously, her husband got far less of her loyalty than he had a right to expect. But this is the way many people treat God! They disappear and reappear in their service to Him whenever it suits them. They vanish from the worship of the church for weeks on end then come back and sing, “Oh, How I Love Jesus,” as if they really meant it!
Faithfulness means giving our Lord the preeminence, the precedence and priority in all things! He expects and has the right to expect no less!
