Focus on God’s Goodness-Message of Christ

June 10th, 2024

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Focus on God’s Goodness is found in Colossians 3:15 and 16.

“Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful. Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts.”

Being thankful is a quality that invites the peace of God in our lives. Remembering His goodness leads us to express praise to God with thanksgiving in our songs. Music is an instrument of praise. It is an instrument of instruction. It is an instrument of joy.

What is the influence that enables us to celebrate God’s goodness in these ways? It is the message of Christ-His good news that brings us the hope of forgiveness and eternal life with Him. His death and resurrection have paved the way for us to believe in the name of Jesus and to enjoy His presence forever.

The message of Christ reveals the goodness of God and is a reason to give thanks in the Year of Gratitude.
