Doing good is something Jesus does. What good did He do?
Healing is a major part of it. Praying and teaching the Kingdom of God.
And you know that God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power. Then Jesus went around doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with him.
He will give eternal life to those who keep on doing good, seeking after the glory and honor and immortality that God offers.
But there will be glory and honor and peace from God for all who do good
—for the Jew first and also for the Gentile.
[ True Wisdom Comes from God ] If you are wise and understand God’s ways, prove it by living an honorable life, doing good works with the humility that comes from wisdom.
Therefore, whenever we have the opportunity, we should do good
to everyone—especially to those in the family of faith.
See that no one pays back evil for evil, but always try to do good
to each other and to all people.
As for the rest of you, dear brothers and sisters, never get tired of doing good.
And don’t forget to do good
and to share with those in need. These are the sacrifices that please God.
For God called you to do good
, even if it means suffering, just as Christ suffered for you. He is your example, and you must follow in his steps.
Dear friend, don’t let this bad example influence you. Follow only what is good. Remember that those who do good prove that they are God’s children, and those who do evil prove that they do not know God.
Titus 2:6-8 New Living Translation (NLT)
6 In the same way, encourage the young men to live wisely. 7 And you yourself must be an example to them by doing good works of every kind. Let everything you do reflect the integrity and seriousness of your teaching. 8 Teach the truth so that your teaching can’t be criticized. Then those who oppose us will be ashamed and have nothing bad to say about us.
