The Source Of Goodness
Wednesday, January 29, 2020
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.
It is God’s essence as eternally self-existing and self-sustaining that allows anyone to benefit in any sort of way. If God is not the Creator, His promises are subject to another power. If God is not self-existing, He is dependent on other factors for power. If God is not self-sustaining, He is subject to change. Yet, the LORD is God and there is no other. This is what qualifies God to give good things. He is the source and standard of good things, clearly proven through the resurrection of Jesus. He is the source of life, wisdom, power, righteousness, and provision. Since God is who He is, we can rest assured in His eternal promises in Christ.
