My sermon today parked on "goodness". If this truly is God’s essence, seen in Jesus Christ and manifested by the Spirit of God to us and through us — then we are people who must seek, not only to do good, but also to be good! That is our core, our very being, our new creation.
As I explore this further — jot any thoughts you may have, or even questions about what I am getting at!
By the way, this comes out of II Peter 1:5 — to your faith add goodness!
