HE IS GOOD, FORGIVING & LOVING
For you, O Lord, are good and forgiving, abounding in steadfast love to all who call upon you. —Psalm 86:5
Yes! God is good all the time… all the time! Of course things do not seem good all the time to us because we are living in a fallen, sinful world where things go bad. Sin has affected this creation, but take joy because the heavenly home before us will be sinless and perfect. Then we will know completely the goodness of God without the negative influences of wickedness.
Be thankful that the Lord is forgiving. If He was not forgiving then the whole human race would have no hope. It is because of His gracious forgiveness that we can even exist. Let us praise His Name! We will be with Him forever!
The astounding thing is that our Lord God Almighty loves us. This is truly amazing that He takes and reconciles those who were His enemies to Himself and gives them life (Romans 5:10)— “For if, when we were enemies of God, we were reconciled to Him through the death of His Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through His life!” So “Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another” (I John 4:11). May it be so!
So how will you and I be like Jesus today? Who will we be “good” to? Are there any we need to forgive? May we do so. How will I show His love to somebody today? Yes, may we be like our Lord today. So be it.
Dear Father of our Lord Jesus Christ may I be like You today toward those I come into contact with. May this be in the power of Your Holy Spirit and in the authority of Jesus. Yes, may this be so! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PemhmovZRec
