God Is Gracious
Construction Zone 3: The Goodness of God
Does God give to everyone good things they do not deserve?
God is a gracious God Who delights in giving good things to His creatures. Psalm 145:9a – The LORD is good to all.
This Truth Makes
When the Bible uses the word “gracious” to describe God, it means that God shows favor (lots of it!) to those who do not deserve any at all. God gives good things to people who do not deserve them and who are not always grateful to Him. He is gracious.
If we did not believe that God gives good things to us, we would probably be tempted to live a life of deep sin, trying to please ourselves with whatever this world could offer us. But God is good. God is good to us. God is good to us all the time! His Goodness is gracious, undeserved, and (almost) unbelievable.
