The Goodness of God

Teaching Notes



What would change in your life if you really believed that God is good?




The goodness of God is that which disposes Him to be kind, cordial, benevolent, and full of good will toward men. He is tenderhearted and of quick sympathy... By His nature He is inclined to bestow blessedness and He takes holy pleasure in the happiness of His people.

Then Moses said, “Now show me your glory.”


And the Lord said, “I will cause all my goodness to pass in front of you, and I will proclaim my name, the Lord, in your presence. I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion.  But,” he said, “you cannot see my face, for no one may see me and live.”

Exodus 33:18-20


Taste and see that the Lord is good

blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.

Psalm 34:8


But as for me, the nearness of God is good for me; 

I have made the Lord God my refuge

So that I may tell of all Your works.

Psalm 73:28


The whole outlook of mankind might be changed if we could all believe that we dwell under a friendly sky and that the God of heaven, though exalted in power and majesty is eager to be friends with us.

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.”
