Do You Believe He Is Good?
Jim Collins says, in his book Good To Great, that good is the enemy of great. That may be so in business, but how about in faith?
One of the earliest things we teach our children is this: God is great, God is GOOD. That’s great (pun intended) but do we believe it?
God invites us to taste and see that He is, indeed, good. He strives, for some reason that just doesn’t make sense to us, to prove to us that He is good. Not great, but good.
A man came up to Jesus and called Him, “Good Teacher.” Jesus replied that there is only One who is GOOD. He is referring to the Father. Jesus doesn’t claim to be GOOD. He wants for us to know that the Father is GOOD.
Do you believe that God is good? If not, why? For all of His emphasis on us knowing that He is good, for some reason many of us simply don’t believe that God is good.
We believe many things about Him.
We believe that He doesn’t care.
We believe that He doesn’t take care of us.
We believe that He is distant.
We believe that He leaves us to our own design.
We believe many things about God.
Do we believe He is good?
