Faithfulness and Abandonment
Sin and abandonment causes emptiness, brokenness, and devastation in life. Yet, Jesus has countered these things with his righteousness, faithfulness, fullness, wholeness, and restoration.
We counter the abandonments of life with a reminding ourselves of God's faithfulness. Jesus was abandoned by God and men; he pressed on faithfully. When we are abandoned by men, we may press on faithfully by the Spirit of Christ.
When relationships break down we try to work towards reconciliation. If we am not handling this biblically, we need God’s Word to tell us what more we should do.
Jesus, fully human and fully God, walked by the Spirit. He was abandoned, that is “forsaken,” by His Father.
How can there be abandonment in God?
God is love; he is disposed to do good to all. The contrary of his attribute of love is hate; a disposition not to do good to some. Malachi 2
God is faithful; he is disposed to adhering firmly and devotedly to someone or something. The contrary of his faithfulness is abandonment; he is not disposed to adhering firmly and devotedly to some.
God’s faithfulness to himself is made known in that he upholds his holiness, while the consequence is his abandonment of all sin.
