God is Good. God is Great.

God is good. God is great. God’s goodness is great. God’s greatness is good. What profit is His greatness to His creatures if it is not good? What profit is His goodness to His creatures if it is not great? We can find comfort in the sufficiency that God is great enough to fulfill His goodness. We can find comfort in the peace that God is good enough to route His greatness. Any negation of either greatness or goodness renders us a God that is incapable of being trusted. His promises are full.

God is my goodness. God is my greatness. God is the fountain from which all of virtue and strength stream forth springs of delight. God is the light from which all morality and might emanate into vessels of praise. My source of such things can only be found in treasuring the one whose being and essence consist only in such exercises.

Christ is the fulfillment of God’s promises, and the mediator of my union with these promises. In Christ, God’s greatness and goodness culminate. In Christ, my greatness and goodness are found.
