God is Good | Part 1

Pastor Chris kicks off our new 2 week series called, God is Good, taking a look at the goodness of our God and some of His characteristics. Using James chapter 1 as our guide the outline is this. God gives perfect gifts, because He is a good Father who never changes. This season is a season of changes. Kids are finishing up school, and some are getting ready to go off to college in the fall. Some are decided if they are going back to college, and others are graduating. Summer vacations are being planned, other this is just a season of decision. Even as a church we are wrapping up our previous fiscal year and planing for the next 12 months.

In all of the pro-con lists, planning, praying, discussions, and deliberations on our decisions, the unknown is there to sabotage. Even the best laid plans do not go as we one hoped or dreamed for them to. But I want to think and focus on what do not change. What is the same no matter what happens in the world around us.

What is that? That is God. God is the same yesterday, today and forever and to trust in that and lean into that for the good of our own souls. Even in the shifting and up and downs in life, God is Good!

Following the scripture from James chapter 1 starting in verses 2 though 18, we take a look at the character of God. And even what God is not and how we try to put things on Him which is false. Let us not forget the truth that God is Good all the time. And that all the time, God is good!
