We use every savory descriptive word that comes to mind, explaining our favorite meal and recommending it to others. Although, as delicious as it may be, it can’t compare to the indescribable goodness of God. People who know the Lord intimately want others to experience Him, too—knowing that meal will never be forgotten.
Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good;
Blessed is the man who trusts in Him! (Psalm 34:8 NKJV).
Meditating on the goodness of God is humbling because we know very well we are undeserving. However, the Lord doesn’t want us to dwell in our unworthiness but instead to boldly spread His goodness.
The Holy Spirit, operating through us, could be the sole intriguing image some of the world will see of Christ; they might not recognize Him any other way. The only Bible they read or sermon they hear might be understood merely through everyday applications of godly actions.
The believers’ earthly assignment isn’t to draw the world to Christ—that’s the Holy Spirit’s job; nevertheless, they are carriers of the “Good News,” and they are to hand out samples for others to see and taste the Lord’s goodness.
How great is Your goodness,
Which You have stored up for those who [reverently] fear You,
Which You have prepared for those who take refuge in You,
Before the sons of man! (Psalm 31:19 AMP)
