"Doing Good" I look and if it is not is not of God......Easy to discern what is from whom.......

I really have to wonder why people do not see the beauty in the instructions in the bible.  The bible gives absolute directions on how to navigate the land mines on this earth....Every instruction in the bible, is given in love.. I am so happy to finally have realized what and who makes this life complete....Jesus.....oh,my dear friends, you can live without Jesus but until you live with Jesus you will never know what you have been missing....Every tear that flows from me (and there are many) is for those who do not know yet.....just like I did not know....and oh...oh...oh....I am so thankful I know now.....

Doing Good

ACTS 10:38 NKJ
38 "how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and
with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were
oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him.

In this summary of the earthly life of Jesus Christ, the first
thing mentioned is that He "went about doing good."

What does the Bible mean when it speaks of "doing good?"

Doing good must involve some type of giving: either of time or
resources. How else can anyone do good?

Look at some of the verses that instruct us to "do good."

44 "But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse
you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who
spitefully use you and persecute you,

LUKE 6:27,33,35 NKJ
27 "But I say to you who hear: Love your enemies, do good to
those who hate you,
33 "And if you do good to those who do good to you, what credit
is that to you? For even sinners do the same.
35 "But love your enemies, do good, and lend, hoping for
nothing in return; and your reward will be great, and you will
be sons of the Most High. For He is kind to the unthankful and

10 Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all,
especially to those who are of the household of faith.

16 But do not forget to do good and to share, for with such
sacrifices God is well pleased.
