The Good in Me

The fool has said in his heart, “There is no God,” They are corrupt, and have committed abominable injustice; There is no one who does good. Every one of them has turned aside; together they have become corrupt; There is no one who does good, not even one. Psalms 53:1‭, ‬3 NASB

The one who says there is no God will not do good. There is no good in our flesh.

For I know that nothing good dwells in me, that is, in my flesh; for the willing is present in me, but the doing of the good is not. Romans 7:18 NASB

Good in me does not come naturally since my nature is to sin. I may be willing to do good but the accomplishment of good is beyond my capabilities. Good in me is only accomplished by the One who lives in me.

And He said to him, “Why are you asking Me about what is good? There is only One who is good; but if you wish to enter into life, keep the commandments.” Matthew 19:17 NASB

Does He live in you?

🌹God is the good in me.

Continually Seeking Him,
