Good Works

God’s grace is not a replacement for good works, but it is the power to perform or accomplish good works.

1 Timothy 6:18 Instruct them to do good, to be rich in good works, to be generous and ready to share,

Titus 2:13-15 Christ Jesus, who gave Himself for us to redeem us from every lawless deed, and to purify for Himself a people for His own possession, zealous for good deeds.

Titus 3:8 This is a trustworthy statement; and concerning these things I want you to speak confidently, so that those who have believed God will be careful to engage in good deeds.

Titus 3:14 Our people must also learn to engage in good deeds to meet pressing needs, so that they will not be unfruitful.

-When I see a need and choose to do a good deed to meet the need, the power of God which is resident in me in the person of the Holy Spirit is activated in me.

-Good deeds require us to be constantly looking for an opportunity to do something or say something that makes a difference in another person’s life. God will open doors and will open our eyes to see the divine appointments.

-Good deeds sometimes require money to complete, sometimes it is actually giving money to someone in need. God will often provide or replenish the funds given so we can give some more and meet some more needs.

-The good deeds that we do for people who are not believers in Jesus will often give us the privilege of sharing our faith and personal story of the difference Jesus has made in our life.
