08/22 Compass Guide Comments By Dr. Daniel Daves

Post by Admin on Fri Sep 11, 2015 6:42 am

22-Aug Ecclesiastes 7-8, 1 Tim. 3-4, Psalms 116-120, Proverbs 22

Today, two of our Bible reading verses collide and collude with one another:
Proverbs 22:1 (NIV)   A good name is more desirable than great riches; to be esteemed is better than silver or gold.
Ecclesiastes 7:1 (NIV)  A good name is better than fine perfume, and the day of death better than the day of birth.

A good name.  This will have a million definitions based on a million opinions. But I am going to defer to God's kingdom definition of GOOD.  

The dictionary says:  noun 1.that which is morally right; righteousness. synonyms: virtue, righteousness, goodness, morality, integrity, rectitude; honesty, truth, honor, probity; propriety, worthiness, merit; blamelessness, purity.

If I am a good man in the opinions of evil men, then they will approve of my life and works and call them good, based on their evil thinking.  If I am a good man in the opinions of religious people, or people of different backgrounds, opinions, or attitudes, then I am a good man based on the opinions of the world.  However, this is not what you or I need in our lives.  It's easy to be considered good in the presence of men.  But it's another thing to be considered good in the presence of God.

Good = morally right; righteousness; virtue, goodness, morality, integrity, rectitude, honesty, truth, honor, probity, propriety, worthiness, merit. (FROM GOD'S POINT OF VIEW)

There is only one way to be a good person from God's point of view. He will not put any confidence in the flesh or natural life of man. He knows man is easily swayed, easily deceived, and easily led away of his own lusts and temptations.  God knows that a man's own heart is deceitfully wicked above all things.  Therefore, there is only one possible way to be a good man in God's sight.

I must DIE and Christ must LIVE.  The absolute presence of Jesus Christ in my life must come to fruition and to the surface.  Christ must be seen in me and through me, and my actions must be His actions.  There must be fruit that shows this is true.

Galatians 2:20 (KJV)  I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.

When a person dies to themselves and lives for Christ, they become servant/slave/son/daughter to the Master, Lord and King of our souls.  They begin to talk and walk as He does. They begin to do the works of God. They bring healing, restoration, love and compassion through their walk.  They outwardly SHOW the love of God through their daily living. Their goals change. Their passions change. Their very being and the essence of their lives changes in transformation because God's Spirit is living in them.

Romans 12:2 (NIV)  Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is--his good, pleasing and perfect will.

When you become this person, all the world will begin to take note.  Your transformation will take place from day to day, week by week. But in short order, you will become a loving, light filled person with a passion for God and His people, including the lost sheep who don't know Him.  Your light will become evident.  The darkness will not comprehend you.  There will be joy and resistance, riot and revival. Your very daily living will create change in your family, community, work place, and world.  You will walk as a good man....

Good = morally right; righteousness; virtue, goodness, morality, integrity, rectitude, honesty, truth, honor, probity, propriety, worthiness, merit. (FROM GOD'S POINT OF VIEW)

These fruits will be evident in your life from God's point of view, as well as mans.  Those in darkness will either come to your light, be intrigued by it but stay at a distance, or they will refute you. But their refuting will be nonsense and have no substance. Their accusations will have no grounds and their resistance will be a lie.

I want to be a good man according to God's point of view.  How about you?  Put yourself to the test. Get into the fire with God. Review your past 12 months of life and see if there is any godly growth or transformation that has taken place. If you find yourself stagnant, it's time to jump into the Compass Guide program and start reading the Word of God with us every day.  This will jump start your transformation process. .  king  king  king
