The Bible says that it is the goodness of God that will lead sinners to repentance and salvation. Not only does the goodness of God draw people direct to Him, but this fruit of goodness operating in a believer can also draw people direct to God through the actual believer. Now how amazing is that family? Pretty amazing, this is why Jesus tells us to be the salt of the earth when people see us they will see Jesus if Jesus is in you, how many times have people asked if you are a Christian? Do you know why they asked they asked because of the goodness that is within you.
One of the key qualities a non believer will pick up on in a solid Christian is this quality of goodness. One thing about being around a person who has the goodness of God active in their lives is people love being around in their presence they feel that they can trust this person, for they don’t waiver like others do. They are deep in the goodness of God. And their lives reflects it so.
This fruit is very powerful because it draws people to Jesus, but for the sinner they don’t know that they are being drawn by Christ, they think they are being drawn by the person who has this gift activated in their lives.
Today I challenge you to get your concordance out and look up the word goodness in the bible, highlight them and began each day by reciting them out loud. The Holy Spirit will show you what goodness means and what it looks like in a child of God. My prayer is for you to grow in the goodness of the Lord. AMEN..
