Kindness Now: A Biblical Overview, Part 4

let's pray

Our beliefs determine our actions.

Believing God is Good, and God is Kind is our foundational belief.

This core belief enhances our connection to God as Father and flows into our relationships with others.

What we believe about God’s nature and character will shape our thoughts, our attitudes, and our actions.

Our beliefs govern how we treat ourselves and others.

If we believe God is a loving Father we will tend to extend love and kindness toward ourselves and toward others who are created in His image.

And without faith, it is impossible to please God because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him. Hebrews 11:6 (NIV)

We believe God is, and that He is good—by faith.

You know of Jesus of Nazareth, how God anointed Him with the Holy Spirit and with power, and how He went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil; for God was with Him. Acts 10:38 (NAS)

And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, 7 in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus. Ephesians 2:6-7 (NIV)

But when the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared, 5 he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit. Titus 3:4-5 (NIV)

Or do you show contempt for the riches of his kindness, tolerance, and patience, not realizing that God’s kindness leads you toward repentance? Romans 2:4 (NIV)
