In order to discover the goodness of God we need to go to His Word. Just as people “discover” one another via words, whether conversation, emails, or texts, God had His Word written so we could discover Him and learn of His goodness to mankind.
Too often man may say “this is what God says and means”, and as a young boy I listened but did not check the Bible, God’s Word, to see if what I as being told was true. And sometimes these comments were completely opposite of what God’s Word actually does say.
We need to discover the goodness of God so we can see His love to us and claim His promises in our lives. Having an incorrect or negative view of God hurts our ability to believe Him. He has given us all good things freely.
It may surprise you to learn that to “repent” does not mean “confess your sins”.Listen to my podcast
