GOOD Deeds - Feb 8th Message

Here is the study about GOD’s calling for us to do the GOOD Deeds as per his will.

1. GOD’s Handiwork:

Eph 2:10
For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them.
The scripture explain us that
We are created for doing great deeds
We are created in Christ Jesus
We are created to carry out the Work or Purpose that GOD has pre-planned for us.

2.      GOD’s People

Titus 2:14
who gave Himself for us to redeem us from every lawless deed, and to purify for Himself a people for His own possession, zealous for good deeds
We are HIS people
Purified thru Christ Jesus’s death
Redeemed from all wickedness
So we can eagerly do the Good deeds

Let us see more:
Luke 6:35
But love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything back. Then your reward will be great, and you will be children of the Most High, because he is kind to the ungrateful and wicked.

If we have to be like our Father in doing the good deeds, he is our role model.

<!--[if !supportLists]-->3.       <!--[endif]-->GOD to be glorified

Mathew 5:16
In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.

Let us in detail how we can glorify our father in heaven in 1 Corin 10:31
Whether, then, you eat or drink or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God

4.     Fruitful life thru Good deeds:

Coloss 1:10
so that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God,

What GOD want in us is a Fruitful Life!

Mark 11:12-14
 On the next day, when they had left Bethany, He became hungry. Seeing at a distance a fig tree in leaf, He went to see if perhaps He would find anything on it; and when He came to it, He found nothing but leaves, for it was not the season for figs. He said to it, “May no one ever eat fruit from you again!” And His disciples were listening

Mark 11:20-21
As they were passing by in the morning, they saw the fig tree withered from the roots up. 21 Being reminded, Peter *said to Him, “Rabbi, look, the fig tree which You cursed has withered.”

The Fig tree in the above scripture tells that a human life a handiwork of GOD not in GOOD deeds will wither. 

How do we make sure we live a productive life?

Titus 3:14
Our people must learn to devote themselves to doing what is good, in order to provide for urgent needs and not live unproductive lives.

Let us pray that every ASK Prayer partner in prayer group and every body saved in Christ lead a productive life.

5.       GOD’S word lead us

2 Tim 3:16
All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness,

Above scripture remind us that it is the WORD of GOD that kindle us to do the GOOD deeds.

6.      A holy vessel to do GOOD deeds
2 TIM 2:21
Those who cleanse themselves from the latter will be instruments for special purposes, made holy, useful to the Master and prepared to do any good work.

Only if we are cleansed by blood of Christ blood everyday and made Holy for the Master to use us for  good work.

7.       Dress code for godly women

1 Tim 2:09-12
I also want the women to dress modestly, with decency and propriety, adorning themselves, not with elaborate hairstyles or gold or pearls or expensive clothes, 10 but with good deeds, appropriate for women who profess to worship God.

GOOD Deeds is an appropriate dress for women of worship. It is not lovely looking hair dos, pretty jewelries and shimmery dresses.

8.      In Alert to do GOOD

Titus 3:1-2
Remind the people to be subject to rulers and authorities, to be obedient, to be ready to do whatever is good, 2 to slander no one, to be peaceable and considerate, and always to be gentle toward everyone.

9.       Noted by their Character

Gal 5:22-23
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.
Cross references:

Corollary is explained in Titus 1:16:
16 They claim to know God, but by their actions they deny him. They are detestable, disobedient and unfit for doing anything good.

In every Walk, Talk, Work we should represent GOD and follow the framework he has defined for us to be called as Christians.

For those who want to inherit the kingdom of GOD should exhibit all the 9 benefits of Holy spirit and do good deeds and be deserving to see the lord face to face.

Below  scripture call us to do a self analysis:
GAL 5:19-21 The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; 20 idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions 21 and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God.

Mathew 7:18-20Good tree can give only good fruits. All the bad trees will be thrown into the fire.

GOOD tree alone can produce GOOD Fruits. GOOD Heart with Holyspirit adorned with 9 fruits alone can inherit the kingdom of GOD.

Be equipped and ready with all the GOODNESS to do GOOD deeds in GOD’s will as mentioned in the below verse.

Hebrews 13:21
equip you with everything good for doing his will, and may he work in us what is pleasing to him, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.
