Do Good (Part 1)

For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.
- Ephesians 2:10 (NKJV)

To make maximum impact, we must engage the evil system of this world with good. Evil succumbs once we do good to others. Goodness is a force from God, and we invoke God by calling him good. Never forget the goodness of God because of a slight difficulty; we must always remind ourselves on purpose of what He has done for us and count our blessings. His goodness is meant to take us to repentance.

Never admit what the devil has done. Anytime we grumble we are siding with Satan. Hard times are not meant to change us, but how we respond to the hard times will change our perspectives. Always think on and talk about the goodness of God because that is what the gospel is all about.

We are to set our hearts towards good so that it will be easier for us to hear God. We must drop the load of bitterness that seeks to weigh us down and instead compete with goodness; that is, look for opportunities to be good to people. The force of goodness is released when we do good. We are to think good thoughts on purpose and speak good words seasoned with grace to edify because evil words are more vicious than blows.

It is possible to do good always because as Jesus is, so are we now. He is good and so are we as sons of God. He has given us the ability to be good and we can spread His goodness everywhere we go. This will in turn draw people to us and ultimately the glory will go to our Father.

Beloved, awake unto your nature. Not doing good is contrary to who you are. You have the nature of God, and His nature is good. God is good and you have been programmed to do good. So go forth and manifest that goodness.
