God Is Faithful

The God of peace Himself will sanctify you wholly 
and keep your spirit, soul, and body sound and blameless 
at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.  
He who called you is faithful, and He will do it.

This verse from the rite of private confession (taken from 1 Thessalonians 5) always struck me that God would be true to His promise.  And He will!  But it's not just that.  It's also that He is the one who IS faithful, who believes rightly, who is blameless.  He is faithful to keep His word, but He is also the faithful man in every way.  His sanctity, His faithfulness, is given to us and becomes our own, so that we too are blameless.
