What is Good?
The Bible defines "good" or “good works” as that which has ETERNAL weight and is worked out from a position RIGHTEOUSNESS and Divine justification according to the ETERNAL absolutes of time and ETERNITY (Psalm 16:2, 34:14, Matt. 6:33, Luke 6:43, John 6:28, Acts 10:38, Rom. 10:2-4, Gal. 2:20-21, 1 Cor. 3:10-15, James 1:17, 3 John 1:10-11, Rev. 14:13).
It is true that fallen humanity can do humanly good in time based on the moral laws which were instilled into the creation by Almighty God (Gen. 1:31, Matt. 7:11) but apart from possessing Almighty God’s redemption and RIGHTEOUSNESS which is found in Jesus Christ it will have no EVERLASTING value (Matt. 7:21-23, Luke 8:15, John 3:16-17, 36, 1 John 2:15-17). These works are called dead works (Matt. 7:21-23, Heb. 6:1, 9:14, James 2:17, Rev. 20:11-15).
That which is God’s good will endure FOREVER, for it is established in the RIGHTEOUS Person of Almighty God the Son.
That which is God’s good will endure FOREVER, for it is established in the RIGHTEOUS Person of Almighty God the Son (Psalms 107:1, 1 John 2:15-17) and the one who possesses Almighty God’s good will be able to do TRUE good, for his work, if labored rightly will abide FOREVER (Dan. 12:3, Matt. 25:31-39, John 14:12, 1 Cor. 3:11-15).
Now my dear friends now go forth and do good unto the Lord's glory (Eph. 5:16-17)!
The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!
