How good is Jesus? It doesn’t get any better than Him. Everything He thinks is good. Everything He says is good. Everything He does is good. He has done all things well.
Jesus is so good that everything is worth giving up in order to obtain Him. Jesus surpasses all others. He is preeminent in all things. He is the Alpha and Omega. Jesus is the beginning and the end. He declares the end from the beginning and from ancient times things that are not yet done.
Jesus is not quick to anger. He is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness. His name is Faithful and True. He speaks the truth truly.
Jesus is good because He is one with the Father and is a true and exact representation of the Father. Jesus is good because he laid down His life willingly, no one took it from Him, He laid it down willingly to save people from their sins. Jesus is good because He did not withhold Himself from suffering so that we could be delivered from sin and be transferred from the kingdom and power of darkness to the power of God and His good kingdom of light.
Jesus is good because He offers us true peace, fulfillment, happiness, joy, contentment, love, and pleasures. He gives us joy despite our circumstances and that joy becomes our strength. The joy of the Lord is our strength. He gives joy in the midst of bleakness.
Jesus is an advocate who pleads our case to the Father once we have trusted in Him. Jesus supports our cause and plight before the Father so that He gives favor to us when we do not deserve it. We come to Him unable to save ourselves and without anything to commend ourselves to Him. We cast ourselves upon Him and He willingly receives all who cast themselves upon Him. He takes our lives, our cares, our sin and bears them, for nothing is too difficult, and nothing is too heavy for Him to bear.
Jesus is good because He leads dumb sheep and teaches them where to go. He is the Good Shepherd. Jesus knows how to lead. He is good, really really really good.
