The Good Lord

We have all heard somebody proclaim that the Good Lord did them a good turn. Sometimes they use the phrase, the Good Lord, without really referring to God’s goodness at all. But it is a fitting name, for God is good. A failure to see His goodness is the source of many an unhappy Christian.
         In the great faith chapter, Hebrews tells us, that 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

         So, we come to God and this Table in faith. We believe that God is. We believe that God is good and we believe that He rewards those who diligently seek Him. This is all because our God is Good. He is The Good Lord.
