God Is Perfectly Good in All His Ways
Adventure 3: The Goodness of God
What is our good God like?
God is holy, loving, and perfect in all He is and all He does. He is true, noble, just, pure, and praiseworthy. It is because of God that we even know what 'good' is. Psalm 34:8 – Oh, taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the man who trusts in Him!
This Truth Makes
If we did not believe that God is really good, then we would not be able to trust Him. It would not be wise to put our trust in someone if we were not confident that he wants what is good for us.
Everything God is and everything God does is perfectly good. We use the phrase “goodness of God” to describe God’s character, or to His personality. God wants us to trust Him, and He has revealed Himself as a trustworthy God.
One evil thing to do is to call evil things “good.” Isaiah 5:20 – Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
For something to be worthy of approval or honor, it must be good. God Himself is the final standard of good. God is the supreme definition of good. Therefore, for something to be truly good, it must resemble (be like) God.
