goodness: jesus


FEBRUARY 24, 2019

What about the “goodness” of God? 

What we choose to believe, we put our trust in.

What we choose to trust in, we build our life upon.


“The sooner we get the message, the better off we’ll be, for the message is good, incredibly good: God is here, and he’s on our side.” (Eugene Peterson)

Good God

He rose from the dead.

“This is my life work: helping people understand and respond to this Message.” – Ephesians 3:7 MSG

If you openly declare that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by openly declaring your faith that you are saved. As the Scriptures tell us, “Anyone who trusts in him will never be disgraced.” Jew and Gentile are the same in this respect. They have the same Lord, who gives generously to all who call on him. For “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” – Romans 10:9-13 NLT

What we choose to believe, we put our trust in.

What we choose to trust in, we build our life upon.
