God is great and God is good


Church Calendar

Charles Warner | The Union Times One of the first prayers a child learns begins with the words “God is great, God is good.” Truer words have never been spoken. God is great and He is good and that is why He does what He has done and continues to do for the human race. First, He made human beings in His own image, setting us apart from the rest of creation. Second, He has given His Only Begotten Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, as the sacrifice for our sins and the path to eternal salvation. Third, He has given us guidance for our daily lives through His Holy Word, The Bible, and through His Holy Spirit. The former provides us with a written record of His will for our lives and the latter provides us with the spiritual guidance we need in order to live our lives according to His will. God does these things not because we are great or good, but because He is, His greatness and goodness demonstrated by all He has done in the past, does in the present, and will do in the future for us. With that in mind, how can we not be grateful to Him for loving us even though we are unlovable and how can we not express that gratitude by letting Him help us have the close and eternal relationship He wants us to have with Him.
