(Spread His Goodness All Around)
By Pastor Chris Oyakhilome
TO THE BIBLE: “The LORD is good; he protects his people in times of trouble; he takes care of those who turn to him.” (Nahum 1:7 GNB)
Our opening scripture shows that God is good and helpful to all those who turn to Him. He’s actually goodness personified and He wants you to spread His goodness all around. 1 Peter 2:9 AMPC declares about you, His child, that “…you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a dedicated nation, [God’s] own purchased, special people, that you may set forth the wonderful deeds and display the virtues and perfections of Him Who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.” He’s called you out of darkness into His marvellous light.
This means that you’ve been called and sent by God to manifest and administer the will, purpose, and character of God to your world; you’ve become a dispenser of His goodness.
Not only are you the recipient of God’s blessings or His righteousness, but you’ve also become the dispenser of His goodness. This is your job; this is your ministry; this is your life. It’s what Jesus did: He’s endowed you with the gift; the ability to reveal and manifest the goodness of your heavenly Father to your world.
Now that you’re born again, you’ve become a vent for His expression, the expression of His glory, love, and grace. Become conscious of this truth, and you’ll never walk in confusion or despondency! Rather, your life will be an unending stream of the supernatural as you live out God’s purpose—dispensing His goodness to your world.
Go Deeper: Colossians 1:27-28; Romans 5:5
Speak: Dear Father, thank you for your righteousness, which is revealed in me, and your glory that’s in my spirit! I’m a dispenser of your love, kindness, goodness, and grace! Thank you for I’ve become the full expression of your character, will and purpose to my world, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
