Thank God for His Goodness

None is perfectly good, but God alone. We acknowledge that truth here, honoring the perfect Lord Jesus who returned good for evil, laying down His life for those who rejected Him and deserted Him. His goodness led many of them to see their own evil, turn from it and turn to Christ.
         At this meal, we see God’s goodness to us. As a human race, we could not save ourselves but needed God to come to us as a man and redeem man, making him new, making evil man good. And this did not happen to all mankind at once but it is happening man by man, woman by woman, child by child as those who see God’s goodness respond to Him in faith and love.
         In this meal we profess our faith in Christ, trusting Him for our redemption and He holds out His promises, His goodness to us, granting us His promises and making us good in His presence. Our response is thankfulness.
