A biblical exploration of the fruit of the Spirit known as “goodness”, which refers to the rapidly vanishing vocation of virtue we are called to cultivate.
James uses the metaphor of a mirror to make his point today about goodness – being good and doing good, which is what this message series is about. He says that people who listen to the word of God without letting it change them are like those who look in a mirror, then immediately turn away and forget what they look like.
We are beginning a new series going through the book of James. The title of the series is “Be Good, Do Good” and it will be an exploration of the fruit of the Spirit known as “goodness”, which refers to the rapidly vanishing vocation of virtue we are called to cultivate.
