The Attributes of God; part 4

The Attributes of God; part 4

ATTRIBUTES of GOD- Part 4; God's Goodness

a worship devotional for musicians

inspired by A.W. Tozer: The Attributes of God: Vol. 1, A Journey Into the Father's Heart

We hit the subject of the goodness of God tonight for our worship team devotional (Chapter 3 of "Attributes of God" by Tozer).

We looked at several scriptures:
Psalm 119:68
Isaiah 63:7
Psalm 139:17
Deut. 30:9
Psalm 36:7
Psalm 34:8
Matthew 7:11

According to these scriptures, how does God's goodness differ from our own goodness? God is supremely good in every way; "God is never partway anything" (Tozer, 43). On the other hand, we have limits and fall short every time. Even when we are at our best we are still flawed; "Nobody ever got anything from God on the grounds that he deserved it." (Tozer, 47)

God is ultimately perfectly kind and completely good.

I will tell of the kindnesses of the LORD,
the deeds for which he is to be praised,
according to all the LORD has done for us— Isaiah 63:7

Taste and see that the LORD is good; -- Psalm 34:8
