Get About Doing Good

In Acts 10:38 we read of Jesus, “He went about doing good.” Jesus personally did good deeds. He touched the leper with His own finger, He anointed the eyes of the blind, and He went Himself to the sick and personally delivered a healing cure. It is a lesson to us, if we intend do good, we should do it ourselves.

Let us not become weary in doing good deeds. Jesus Christ was never deterred by danger or difficulty. Our Lord did not only do the good deeds which were convenient to Him, but He “went about” on His errands of mercy. He actively sought out the objects of His gracious intentions. So too must we, for “He hath left us an example that we should follow in His steps.”

I am a depraved, morally bankrupt wretched sinner through and through. I’ve attended church sporadically most of my life, haven’t spent a minute in seminary and only recently gave the Bible more than a cursory review. I’ve attended exactly one theology class and I dropped out of that. However, in spite of my moral infidelity, I’ve come to be filled with the Holy Spirit. I’ve learned my salvation isn’t the result of what I do, but rather what Jesus has done on my behalf. I didn’t find the Holy Spirit, He found me. And in our relationship I have invited Him to change me, to use me for His purpose, to conquer my will with His own. Praise the Lord, for even an unworthy, chronic sinner like me can experience and give testimony to His glory!
