The Fruit of the Spirit - Goodness
broken_skai wrote in lovefor_jesus
The sixth revelation of the Fruit of the Spirit is goodness.

Mathew 19
17 And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.

Those are the words of Jesus. He says that there is none good but God. All goodness flows from Him, for He is the source of all that is good. A person can be the most vile, wicked, God-hating person on this planet and yet if there be any good in that person's life at all, it comes from the very God they hate. People are not good...they may do all sorts of good works, but works alone won't make one good in the eyes of the Lord. Only by the allowing of Jesus Christ into the heart and He bearing this fruit by the power of the Holy Spirit can one be good in the eyes of the Lord. For when He looks upon you, He sees His own goodness, in His Holy Spirit dwelling in your heart.

Exodus 33
19 And he said, I will make all my goodness pass before thee, and I will proclaim the name of the Lord before thee; and will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will show mercy on whom I will show mercy.

Psalm 23
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

Psalm 107
9 For he satisfieth the longing soul, and filleth the hungry soul with goodness.

His goodness passes before, follows after, and also fills. Full of mercy and faithfulness, His goodness is blessing...

Blessings to all in His name.
