Further Reflections on Confessions and Statements of Faith References

The Christology of the song, “God Is So Good” is carefully based on the content of the Apostles’ Creed, and the firmness of the convictions here echo the words of Belgic Confession, Article 20, that God gave “his Son to die, by a most perfect love, and [raised] him to life for our justification, in order that by him we might have immortality and eternal life.” “When [his] benefits are made ours, they are more than enough to absolve us of our sins…(Additionally,) the Holy Spirit kindles in our hearts a true faith that embraces Jesus Christ, with all his merits, and makes him its own, and no longer looks for anything apart from him” (Belgic Confession, Article 22).

Additional Prayers

A Prayer of Thanksgiving
Generous God, you are always out to save. You are the God of Jacob, but also the God of Peter and Paul. You are the God of preachers, but also the God of prisoners. Always you are out to warm a cold heart, or to soften a hard one. You are so good at saving. You are so good. And you are so good to me, in Jesus’ mighty name. Amen. 
— Cornelius Plantinga, Jr.

Hymn Story/Background

Like many simple songs, the origins of this short chorus is unknown.  Its simplicity invites improvising additional text, and the fact that it has been translated into many languages testifies to its wide reception as a child-like creed and testimony.
