Quotes and highlights from Chapel, August 10, 2017.
Bacon is good! Bacon is so good that there is a saying that goes, “Bacon makes everything better.” And it’s true. Proof! I say this to make the point that God is good! He is actually better than bacon!
James 1:17a NLT
17 Whatever is good and perfect is a gift coming down to us from God our Father.
God only gives us goodness!
Romans 8:28 NLT
28 And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.
In God’s goodness, he works out everything for good. As a believer, what you think is bad is actually just unseen or unrealized goodness. If something bad happens to you, just wait, God is going turn it around for good. Did you notice I said “for good” and not “for you.” Hmmmm… think about that for a moment.
What we sometimes perceive as crazy harsh in the moment turns out to be crazy good in the long run.
When things go south for you, and they will from time to time, you have to remember, “Wait for it… good is coming, because God is good!”
Nowhere is the goodness of God more evident than in the person of Christ Jesus. God provided a way for us to live eternally with him even though we mess things up. God is good and what he does for us and to us is for good.
