A Challenge For Us All
God Is Good All The Time. This is a phrase we hear and say many times a year at church. When you stop and think about the meaning it’s incredible to know that God can be good all the time. Not just occasionally and not just on Sundays, but all the time. That is an incredible challenge for us but one worth pursuing. Every day we should give it our best to be good, to think of others and remember that God is watching. Be observant of the God Things that are happening in your life and the challenge to be good can become easier. Do you find that when you’re in a good mood it’s easy to feel enthusiastic? Then when you’re in a bad mood it’s hard to feel good about anything. So imagine if you’re good all the time how positive the impact can be in your life.
God knows we are all sinners and none of us is perfect. That doesn’t mean we shouldn’t try. I don’t know what will happen on judgment day. What I do know is that I want to have done good things in my life. To have been a good husband, good father, a good grandfather and have done good works. To have been honest, giving and have helped others. I want there to be God Things that I have helped to create in someone else’s life.
James 2:14-17 What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can that faith save him? If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacking in daily food, and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and filled,” without giving them the things needed for the body, what good is that? So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.
