Goodness

God is good, All the time!
All the time, God is good!

Galatians 5:22-25; Matthew 18:21-35; Romans 3:10, Psalm 14 & 23

Good means:
The God who is generous far beyond the requirements of justice.

(The Greek word here for “good” in Galatians is only used in the Bible or
in reference to the Bible.)

God is just and will always do right.
God’s generosity is abundant towards sinners.

Sin distorts God’s creation and intention.
Rebellion is sin and breaks everything good in us that God intended.

Romans 3:10, Psalm 14 – No one is perfectly good. We must be saved!
To be saved only comes through, the Blood of Jesus, His Salvation work on the Cross and the Holy Spirit that He gives to us.

Though we fall short, the goal of the church is to reflect the fruit of The Spirit. The only way we become good is to seek and anticipate the power of The Holy Spirit. If we want to be truly good, we must keep in step with The Holy Spirit…

Galatians 5:22-25  “22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. 24 Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. 25 Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit.”

Psalm 23:6 “Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me All the days of my life; And I will dwell in the house of the Lord Forever.”

If God’s people are filled with The Spirit, manifesting God’s character and the fruit of The Spirit, walking in the power of The Holy Spirit, then everything in the City of Los Angeles will change. And, our world will change through His power and love, working in us!
