Whoever Does Good Is from God

Jesus said in the Sermon on the Mount, “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.” The Apostle John said it another way: whoever does evil has not seen God. Therefore, if we do good, we will also see God.

“Beloved, do not imitate evil but imitate good. Whoever does good is from God; whoever does evil has not seen God.”

(3 John 1:11)

All good comes from God. There is no evil in God, for His very spirit is pure and undefiled. What is evil? Sin is evil. Breaking God’s law is evil. We, however, have hope in Jesus. He paid the penalty of sin for us, and because of it, we have salvation.

What is good? Good is to love God and to love others as we love ourselves. We ought to honor and worship God, honor our parents, keep others safe, be faithful to the one we love, be honest with one another, keep our word, and be happy with what we have.

When we do good, we are seeing as God sees, for our heart is His heart and our love is His love working in us. Blessed is our God for He is good and whoever does good is from God.

    1. “The wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord” (Romans 6:23). Christ’s sacrifice on the cross was to pay for our sin, as He was the perfect sacrifice. The Old Testament Israelites had to sacrifice animals in order to purge sin from their lives. Sin requires a blood sacrifice, and because Jesus had no sin living in Him, God had his blood spilt in our stead. Matthew’s gospel details Jesus’ fulfillment of God’s divine plan through the Old Testament prophecies. No other event is as important as that which Christ had gone through, which is his death and resurrection from the dead to sit at the right-hand of the Father. God bless, Gisela.
