Jesus Is Good Still

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.

Jesus Is Good

The Lord Jesus is good. There is no one good but Him. Everything was created by Him and for Him and everything is owned by Him. I am so thankful that He is good for there are countless things that are unknown to us and being that He is good and controls all things, one can rest in His goodness.

Jesus is worthy to be praised at all times. He is worthy of glory and honor and wealth and power and blessing and wisdom and might and dominion forever and ever. You could never praise Him too much.

God reigns over the nations; God sits on His holy throne. Jesus sits at the right hand of the Father until all things are put under His feet. His enemies, and where His enemies dwell, will be made a footstool for His feet. Heaven is God’s throne and the earth is His footstool. He is big. The heavens cannot contain Him. He fills heaven and earth.

Jesus sees all things, knows all things, and nothing is too difficult for Him. No one can lessen His power in any way. No one can stop Him from doing what He would please to do. Everything that He would please to do is good.

Anything good that anyone has or experiences is only because Jesus is good. Goodness pours from Him like a fountain. Life pours from Him. Satisfaction pours from Him. Joy and happiness pour from Him. Love pours from Him. Kindness pours from Him. Gentleness pours from Him. Justice pours from Him. Faithfulness pours from Him. Righteousness pours from Him. He is the Fountain of Living Waters.

Jesus is the only one who can satisfy to the full. He alone can satiate the soul. In His presence is fullness of joy and at His right hand are pleasures forevermore.

To all who call upon Him in sincerity and truth, He is a shield and a refuge. To those who put their trust in Him, He is a deliverer and defender of their souls. He is a good teacher.

There is no one more patient than Jesus. He is slow to anger. He gives favor to those who do not deserve it. He never gives punishment to those who do not deserve it. He owes no man or woman.

There is no one more beautiful than Jesus. He knows what beauty the eye beholds. He created the eye. He knows what beauty the ear hears. He created the ear. He is the Bright Morning Star. He dwells in unapproachable light. The splendor of His magnificence is more than can be dreamt or imagined. He is without flaw and impeccably perfect from every angle and in every respect in the whole of His being.

The authority that Jesus carries is matched by no other. He speaks a word and it is done. His words are pure and never corrupt. He never makes a mistake in what He says. His words are weighty and freeing. His words are life. His words give life.

Jesus put on flesh and dwelt among us that we might have life. He came to destroy the works of the devil. He died to save us from our sin. He rose again from the dead to declare those whom He would save to be righteous and forever be their Advocate. He is good.

Jesus is coming again. He is coming to show His kingship and to bring rest for all those who put their trust in Him. Whoever trusts in Jesus will never be put to shame. He is irreplaceable and thankfully indestructible.

“I will bless the LORD at all times; his praise shall continually be in my mouth.”
