In this teaching from our September 2022 Covenant Member’s Gathering Pastor Jason reminded us what the core mission of the Church (and, thus, Peine Ridge Church) is. He then demonstrated how good works support that mission, showing us that we should do good works because:
- People are in need and you can alleviate their suffering.
- God commands us to do good to others. (Mt. 5:14-16; 22:37-40; Eph. 2:10; Titus 2:14; 3:8, 14; Gal. 6:9-10)
- By the work of the Holy Spirit in us we want to do good to others.
- Jesus did good works. (Mark 1 & Luke 19)
- Good works commend and adorn the Gospel.
He also pointed out some of the dangers of doing good works and gave us some practical suggestions for how to go about doing good works in a way that gives all glory to God.
