From My Devotions

God’s Goodness, The Gospel, And Grace

Today we’ll be looking at some reasons to praise God that begin with the letter G, the Gospel, God’s Goodness and more.

Gentleness

God is gentle and merciful in His dealings with us. And as He is gentle with us, so we should be gentle with those He brings across our path.

James 3:17

But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.

Glorification

Once we are Christians, we have the promise of a glorified body once we get to Heaven.

Rom 8:29-30

For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.

Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.

Philippians 3:20-21

For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ:

Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself.

No longer will we be tempted to do wrong; our sinful nature will be gone. And our weak bodies, prone to sickness and pain, will no longer trouble us.

Revelation 21:4

And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

God’s Goodness (You Are Always Good)

God is good, and all goodness comes from God. As this song says, He is always good, and He is only good.

Psalm 34:8

O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.

Psalm 119:68

Thou art good, and doest good; teach me thy statutes.

Psalm 145:9

The LORD is good to all: and his tender mercies are over all his works.

Gospel

Gospel means Good News, and what better good news is there to share than that we can be saved from our sins! Our command as Christians is to share the Gospel with others. Are we doing it?

Mark 16:15

And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.

Grace

I like the acronym definition of Grace: God’s Riches at Christ’s Expense. God gives us salvation, a gift we do not deserve, because Jesus paid for it with His blood on Calvary.

Ephesians 2:8-9 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:

Not of works, lest any man should boast.

After receiving the gift of salvation, we can continue to access God’s grace to help us through difficult circumstances.

Hebrews 4:16

Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.

2 Peter 3:18

But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.

I hope you have a wonderful remainder of your Lord’s Day!
