Is there anything really Good in your life? Do you have a good marriage? Do you have a Good Job? Do you have Good parents? Do you live in a Good country? Do you have a Good church? Do you have a Good relationship with your lord and savior Jesus Christ? Do you have a good support system of family and friends? Do you have a vision of a Good God? Or a distain for God?

Decisions you make are they Good decisions or bad decisions? Do you hang out with the wrong crowd? Or do you keep to yourself and avoid interaction with others? Is balance part of your Life? John 17:14-16 We are in the World, we are not of the World.

Does this mean we should avoid participation in elections? Should we participation in our local community? Helping our neighbor? What is the one Good thing in our lives? What is the one Good thing in the world? What is the one Good thing in the Universe? Jesus had this to say about Good! Luke 18:19 so Jesus said to him, “Why do you call Me good? No one is good but One, that is God.” Wow, Jesus was teaching about becoming like little children to enter into the kingdom of God. Vrs 17 “Assuredly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, will by no means enter it.” Luke 18:14 “For everyone who exalts himself will be abased, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.” John 14:6 I’am the way the truth, and the life. Matt. 20:16 “So the last will be first and the first last.” Jesus the teacher is giving us insight to himself on how he pleased his father and honored his God and how we ought to please our father and God in heaven. We are called to be servants, to feed the hungry to heal the sick, ambassadors representing the hope of humanity in the coming Kingdom of God in a dying world.

What is the meaning behind Jesus stating that there is no one good but God? We have been taught that Jesus is God but is this possible in light of the above acclamations from Jesus own words? I Tim 6:15 says “Which HE (the father) will manifest in His own time, He who is the blessed and only Potentate ( sovereign), King of Kings and Lords ( Adonia only used of the father) of lords.(adoni) used of worldly kings and important people) 16. who alone (the father not the son) has immortality. Jesus could not raise himself from the dead only God could do this. Whom no man has seen or can see, (this could only be the father since Jesus was seen by many) to whom be honor and everlasting power. Amen

Jesus is called king of kings! Who else is called King of kings? Ezra 7:12 Artaxerxes is King of kings, Exk 26:7 Nebuchadnezzar is King of kings, Dan 2:37 again a title for the best King. Could this then explain no one is good except God for he alone is immortal? Ps 86:5 Ps 119: 68 David again was acknowledging his good God and father. Ezra 3:11 “For he is Good” {Yahweh} For His mercy endures forever toward Israel. Back to Ps. 83:18 “That men may know that You whose name alone is the Lord. Strongs 3068 Yahweh. This good and only God is none other than our father.
