Do You Know Good?
Yesterday I wrote a note to a friend and brother, afterwords it got me to thinking. The world calls good evil and evil good. Good is not what is in your heart; ""The heart is more deceitful than all else And is desperately sick; Who can understand it?" (Jeremiah 17:9 NASB). Good is not what gives you pleasure or happy feelings; good is defined by Scripture alone. "Trust in the Lord with all your heart And do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He will make your paths straight. Do not be wise in your own eyes; Fear the Lord and turn away from evil." (Proverbs 3:5-7 NASB). God is good and is defined through Scripture alone. Jesus said; "This is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent." (John 17:3 NASB). To know God and Jesus Christ whom He sent is to know good; do you know good? Repentance is a change of mind; to call what Scripture alone calls good, and call what Scripture alone calls evil. To worship God alone, that is to embrace that which Scripture alone calls good and to abhor what Scripture alone calls evil. Do you know God and Jesus Christ whom He sent; do you know good?
