‘God is great, God is good,’ so always give thanks to Him


Church Calendar

Charles Warner | The Union Daily Times There’s a prayer that begins with the words “God is great, God is good,” words that quite nicely sum up the nature of God. God is great because He created the universe, something no other being can do because, like the universe itself, they too are creations of God. God is also good because He is good and because of that He seeks only what is good for His creations, especially human beings, the only part of creation that He made in His image. We should all give thanks to God because, first, without Him creation does not exist and if creation did not exist we would not exist, either. We should give thanks to God for His goodness in giving us His son, Jesus Christ, to take upon Himself our sins and give us all the opportunity to be saved from sin and the consequences of sin by accepting Him as a our Lord and Savior. So always give thanks to God, for He is both great and good and give thanks not only in prayer but by living a life that strives to be pleasing to He whose greatness and goodness is without limit.

Charles Warner | The Union Daily Times There’s a prayer that begins with the words “God is great, God is good,” words that quite nicely sum up the nature of God.
