Do Good...

Since Christians are not to “grow weary in doing good,” what good things are they to be doing? The Bible says the following, “What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can that faith save him? If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacking in daily food, and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and filled,” without giving them the things needed for the body, what good is that? So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.” James 2:14-17 God wants us to do good to all those we come in contact with. God wants us to show mercy and kindness. Galatians 6:9-10 states, “And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up. So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith.” God wants us to put our focus on two main issues: Our relationship with Him and our relationship with others. People will see God through our actions and attitudes. God tells us that we are to be imitators of God, as beloved children (Ephesians 5:1).
Love is a verb when it comes to how the Bible expects us to act. That verb is an action and portrays itself in everyday kindness and compassion towards others. In John 13:34-35 Jesus states the following, “A new commandment I give unto you, That you love one another; as I have loved you, that you will also love one another. By this shall all men know that you are my disciples, If you have love for one another.” If we have love then we have our faith in action. Martin Luther said: ‘The whole being of any Christian is faith and love. Faith brings the person to God; love brings the person to people.” By this we as Christians are doing good to those around us. God will give us the opportunity to do good to all, we just simply have to act on it.
