16 Days of Biblical Declarations to Help You Build the “Goodness” Character

Jesus Christ went about doing good. Can you say the same of yourself?

When was the last time you went about with the mindset of just doing good to others? Do you wake up in the morning and your number one motivation is to go about doing good? Most Christians do not do this. We do not have the mindset of Christ who had the character to go about doing good on earth. He was very zealous and passionate about His father’s business. His father’s business is to do good to all men. His father causes the sun to rise up on both the good and the evil. He causes the rain to fall for all men. He heals the sick and opens the blind eye. Jesus’s father is a good good father who Jesus mirrored while on earth. Do you do the same?

Many of us are so distracted by the activities of this world such that, what really matters to Christ does not necessarily matter to us. We seek to gratify self. We seek to live life for ourselves and not for God yet what God really wants is that we live a selfless life, for in this is our calling and our fulfilment in life. Doing good for others surely has its reward although its reward must not be your motivation but to fulfil the will of him that sent you in being the light of the world (Matthew 5:14).

I can never forget my return from climbing Mount Kilimanjaro as a challenge in aid of Compassion UK in January 2017. I didn’t expect anything in return but upon my return from the trip was a good read from the local newspaper. They had carried the news about the fundraising project and there was an interview about it all on Jesus House radio. When I extended myself a little bit to help others, its news spread across the board. This is one of the benefits of extending ourselves to others in need.

Doing good for others may not come to you naturally but you can develop, build, grow and express the good Christian character, and it doesn’t matter whether you are a new believer or a matured believer. It is not embraced in the world where evil and wickedness is prevalent with corruption, dishonesty, indecency, cruelty, immorality and self-centeredness but Christians must have it. It is what distinguishes us from the people of the world. We must look for the good in others and we must look out for the good of others. We must seek to do good to everybody we come across no matter their gender, age or status.

We have been called to conform to the image of Christ and not to the ways of this world. We have been called to uphold the image of Christ wherever we find ourselves. To embrace this benevolence may mean going against the norm and God is ready to empower us with this gift that only comes from Him. It is a fruit of the Holy Spirit who dwells in you and it is a good gift that brings blessings and rests for your soul (Jeremiah 6:16). If by any chance you desire fame at all, do good. Should you want anybody to take you seriously and treat you with respect, do good. The following Bible declarations can help propel you into a place of prayer where you are able to ask and receive this goodness of the Lord.
