In Revelation 3:14 Jesus calls Himself by this epithet, “And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;” Many of us don’t know the meaning and significance of our names, but many other cultures are very careful about naming babies and know the meaning of those names. Jesus does not claim names for no reason. Every name or description that we see given to Him is for a reason and Amen is no exception.
Let us look to Jesus the one who is surely firm, indeed steady, and truly trustworthy and faithful. Many could be said to be trustworthy or faithful, but Christ is the definition of trustworthiness and faithfulness. We can depend upon Him and He will never fail us. On the other hand, we are not as trustworthy, but He is our example and we should all make every effort to be more like Him. Are you faithful to the Faithful One, the Amen?
