This week we consider faith or faithfulness as one of the elements of the fruit of the Spirit. Concerning this, Martin Luther wrote in his commentary on Galatians: “Thus we also find that faith is of two kinds. The one kind is directed toward God, to whom we are faithful, not so much because we keep our promises as because we believe His promises; the other kind is directed toward our fellowman, to whom we are faithful when we keep, and adhere to, our agreements and promises.”
