“Beloved, follow not that which is evil, but that which is good. He that doeth good is of God: but he that doeth evil hath not seen God.” – 3 John 1:11 (KJV)
You do what you follow and ultimately become what you follow.
As a child of God, it is vital to be conscious of the things that are attracting you because whatever gets your attention can influence you for good or evil.
No wonder the Apostle John exhorts Christians to follow or imitate what is good and shun evil.
The one who practices good and has a godly character is of God, and the one who practices evil or tolerates evil has not seen God.
Dear beloved, what are you imitating? If you are born again, then you are God’s seed. Thus, you can practice good and shunning evil.
If you still don’t know what is good, then follow Jesus Christ through the Word of God, and do whatever He does (Ephesians 5:1).
Doing good works shows that we are the children of God and distinguishes us from the children of the devil (John 8:47).
Let God express His goodness in you, and many lives will be blessed. Hallelujah! Do good!
Prayer Point: Dear heavenly Father, thank you for giving me the ability to do good every day. I promise to do good even if I don’t feel like it, in Jesus’ name. Amen!
