Fruits of the Spirit (Goodness)

Goodness

(Exodus 33:19)  And He said, “I will make all my goodness pass before you and will proclaim before you my name ‘The Lord.’ And I will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will show mercy on whom I will show mercy. According to this passage we can understand goodness through God’s grace and mercy. In human terms we can work toward forgiveness in our pursuit of goodness. Refusing to forgive and allow God to be your vindicator bleeds dry your peace and joy. Leave your weights in the hands of God and be His example of good.  (Mark 10:18) And Jesus said to him, “Why do you call me good? No one is good except God alone. The words of Jesus tell us that true goodness is only available in God. As fallen beings we can only hope to achieve degrees of goodness, always falling short of God. By this we learn that we must rely on God’s Spirit to exemplify goodness. The conviction of the Holy Spirit will lead us to seek the things that are good in the eyes of God and not the world.

  1. I love this post! The picture says it all. We are nothing without Him and when we live by the Spirit, His compassion will flow out of our hearts and into others lives.
