Psalm 118 verse 17 NASB
"I will not die but live and tell of the works of the Lord"
Let's not sugarcoat it. It's true we live in a time of testing and trials on every side. Nevertheless the Word of God encourages us and teaches us how to keep grounded in the midst of such storms.
One Sunday, my Pastor preached a word, and while preaching he said something that stood out. He said, “the only problem with the word “good” is that it has an extra “O” that does not belong.” After hearing this, the Holy Spirit began to speak to me; the funny thing is that we can go to a diverse group of people, and each person’s definition of a “good” life would be different; one’s definition can be to have a four-car garage with a brand new car in each one of them and another’s definition can simply be just to own ONE car. You see when we strive to have a “good” life our desires will never get fulfilled because we are trying to get something from somewhere we aren’t meant to get it from. In the above scriptures, Jesus says, “that they (the body of Christ) might have life and have it more abundantly. Then goes onto say for I am the GOOD shepherd: the GOOD shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.” Even though this is not an unfamiliar text to a lot of Christians; we still find ourselves searching to have a “good life” when all the good we will ever need went to the cross for us over 2,000 years ago and that same spirit dwells within us. If you read verse 9, Jesus also says, “I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved.” Jesus is saying, it is already done all we have to do is search him for the answers. With that being said; why do a lot of us settle for the “good” life when we can have the best life in Christ? Though there are a lot of answers to this question, I believe it is because we have a hard time equating godly to good; at least that’s what it was for me.
