The Goodness of God Exodus 33:18-23

Have you ever been asked to describe God? What would you tell a person if you were asked to tell what God is like? Would you tell the person that God is love, powerful, infinite, sovereign, and the creator of the world? Would you ever think to say that God is good?

In this message I am going to explore the biblical truth that God is a good God.

In Psalm 119:68, we find these words, "Thou art good, and doest good."

You see, God is proclaimed to be good.

(Have audience repeat this phrase with you throughout the sermon)

God is good; all the time – All the time; God is good

I. First, God is Essentially and absolutely good.

It is His nature to be good. He can’t be anything but good.

All of His actions are good. Everything that God is involved in is good.

God’s character prevents Him from being bad. Even in those times when we don’t understand why something has happened, we can be sure that it will ultimately turn out good because God is good.

Ps 106:1 Praise ye the LORD. O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.

Ps 107:1 O give thanks unto the LORD, for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.

Ps 118:1 O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good: because his mercy endureth for ever.

Ps 136:1 O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.

God is good; all the time – All the time; God is good

II. God is also Eternally good.

This means that God can’t ever change. He was good in the past. He is good today. He will be good forever. You see, God’s nature will never change.

In Malachi 3:6, we read, For I am the Lord, I change not."

We can count on God always being good. For God to stop being good, His nature and character would have to change.

God is good; all the time – All the time; God is good

III. God is Expressing His goodness toward you and I today.

Four times in Psalm 107 we find these words about the goodness of God expressed toward the world of humanity, "Oh that men would praise the Lord for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!"

God is so kind to give us wisdom, direction, provision, and life itself. You are a recipient of the goodness of God every day of your life. Are you aware of that great truth?

God is good; all the time – All the time; God is good

IV. God Employs His goodness toward you and I.

Rom 2:4 "Or despisest thou the riches of His goodness and forbearance and longsuffering; not knowing that the goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance?"

1. The goodness of God is manifested in His Desire to forgive our sin.

* Psalm 86:5 "For thou, Lord, art good, and ready to forgive; and plenteous in mercy unto all them that call upon thee."

* God is ready to forgive any person who is willing to admit and confess that they are a sinner, and that they accept what Jesus Christ has done for them on the Cross of Calvary where He shed His blood for their sins.

2. God’s goodness is manifested toward us by His dispensing of grace to live on in this world.
