Good

Doing good, one of the deepest desires of God’s heart,  is also one of mine.

My prayer

Goodness, may I be a mirror of You. Please rub away anything that doesn’t reflect clearly.

Biblical touchstones

I believe that I shall see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living. Psalm 27:13

God’s divine power has given us everything needed for life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness. 2 Peter 1:3

I myself feel confident about you, my brothers and sisters, that you yourselves are full of goodness, filled with all knowledge, and able to instruct one another. Romans 15:14

Invitation to prayer

Imagine yourself as the full embodiment of God’s goodness. Be filled with the joy of that! What prayers are emerging in  your heart, mind, body and imagination? Pray them now.

  • Very true! Reminds of the following verse:
    But love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest: for he is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil. – Luke 6:35

  • Thank you for the post. For more on John Wesley, I would like to invite you to the website for the book series, The Asbury Triptych Series. The trilogy based on the life of Francis Asbury, the young protégé of John Wesley and George Whitefield, opens with the book, Black Country. The opening novel in this three-book series details the amazing movement of Wesley and Whitefield in England and Ireland as well as its life-changing effect on a Great Britain sadly in need of transformation. Black Country also details the Wesleyan movement’s effect on the future leader of Christianity in the American colonies, Francis Asbury. The website for the book series is http://www.francisasburytriptych.com. Please enjoy the numerous articles on the website. Again, thank you, for the post.
