Ep 6: What is Goodness?
Marty Grubbs • 06-Nov-2022
This week Senior Pastor Marty Grubbs continued in the Fruit of the Spirit series, focusing on goodness. All goodness comes from the goodness of God. Goodness is an inner quality; it is kindness in action. Goodness is defined as a deliberate preference of right over wrong—a deliberate resistance of all moral evil, choosing and following all moral good. In Greek, goodness has the specific meaning of being energized to act in a benevolent (on behalf of others) way. It implies that one can demonstrate goodness when exhorting or rebuking when it is for someone’s good. It is something we do ... but it must grow out of who we are.
Goodness is revealed in three characteristics:
Integrity: Good people are the same in every situation.
Purity: Good people have their hearts in the right place.
Behavior: Good people are people who do good things.
