Doing Good

How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him” (Acts 10:38). Then comes Jesus to restore good. Not only did He do “good,” He was Good Himself. He did so because as a man, God the Father was with Him. Apart from God, it’s impossible to do “good.” He was the express image of God. He showed the Father’s heart to do good to everyone. Notice Jesus said, “I am the good shepherd” (John 10:11, 14). He also said, “Love your enemies and do good to them which hate you” (Luke 6:27). Jesus was an example of good works. He was an example of how to display good in our lives. Doing “good” comes from knowing Good. Good is an outflow of good within us. We don’t try to do “good.” It comes from our relationship with the author of good.
