God Is A Good God

Luke 6:35-36 NKJ 35 "But love your enemies, do good, and lend, hoping for nothing in return; and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High. For He is kind to the unthankful and evil. 36 "Therefore be merciful, just as your Father also is merciful.

Unfortunately, not many people understand that God is truly good -- but He is. The world has been deceived into accepting an image of God that's mean and vindictive, harsh and strict.

But the Bible, especially the fuller revelation given in the New Testament, paints a different picture of God. He is a Father -- a good Father.

It would be good news if we had a God who was kind to the average person. But God doesn't stop there. According to Jesus, who knows, God is kind to unthankful and evil people, too!

That may not be what you often hear preached, but that's what Jesus said. The Most High God is kind to evil people.

Jesus also said that not only is God kind to evil people, but He is merciful. In fact, one passage even says that God delights in mercy! (Micah 7:18)

Too often people think God is mad at them, so there is little chance He would help them. The opposite is true. Jesus told us that God so loved the world . . . .

And He hasn't changed His mind.

SAY THIS: My Father God is a good God. He loves the people of this world, including me.
