Word 4 Today March 20, 2011

CHOOSING LIFE’S BEST

God has, at times, gotten a bad rap and has been blamed for so many things that had nothing to do with Him. God is good, and therefore being good, we can often tell whether or not a thing is of God.    If God is good, and it comes from God, it must be good.  Honesty is good, unselfish helpfulness is good, purity is good, and love is good.  God brings order out of chaos, and out of evil, and peace out of turmoil, that’s good.  God gives us fantastic insight through His Son, Jesus, as to who He is.  Was Jesus good?  Did He do good or evil?  Did He hurt or help?  Take or give?  If you want to know who God is, look to Jesus.  Put your past, present and future in knowing God is good.  Following good and believing in the goodness of God will bring you to the abundant life, a life that no amount of money can buy.  “How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him.”  Acts 10:38

PRAYER 4 TODAY

Lord I pray to do my best today to reach out for good.  May I be an overflow of Your goodness to all I meet today.

 

THOUGHT 4 TODAY

If Christ did not die for good, what did He die for?  If He did not die for you, then who?  “I am the good shepherd.  The good shepherd gives His life for the sheep.”  John 10:11 Does that sound anything but GOOD?
