Do you know what the difference is between good guys and bad guys? Is it the hat they wear? Or their clothes? Or the cool weapons they use? Or maybe the car or space ship they drive? Nope, nope, and nope. It’s none of those things. Good guys aren’t always good. And bad guys aren’t always bad. But you still gotta know the TRUE difference because you’re gonna have to choose which one you’ll be.
First, maybe you should know that good guys can only be good guys if you know what good is? And bad guys can only be bad guys if you know what bad is. Do you know what makes something good or bad? If you don’t, I’ll let you in on a secret…
…nobody on earth gets to make up what’s good and bad. God is the way to know if something is good or bad. He says something is good because it’s good for you. Something is good when it helps you…and when it helps you to help others. And something is bad when it hurts you and hurts others. And really bad things can cause people to die. And God hates that. So, He made some rules so we’d know how things are supposed to work. He did it for our own good, because He loves us. Not because He doesn’t want us to have any fun. God knows what’s good for us better than we do. After all…He made us.
So, if you wanna be one of the good guys, it’s a good idea to find out what God says.
Don’t worry about being good every minute of every day. God knows you can’t do it. That’s why He sent Jesus…because Jesus could do it. And Jesus lived a perfect life and paid the way for you to live forever. Imagine…you can go to Heaven and live forever, and all you have to do is trust that Jesus will get you there.
The really, really bad guys…the ones who don’t want to trust and love Jesus…don’t go to Heaven. And that’s their choice. God doesn’t want them to choose that way, but He won’t force them to choose His way. He knows that wouldn’t be true love.
Now, do you understand the difference between good guys and bad guys? If not, let me know what you don’t understand. I’ll try to help some more.
The world if full of good guys and bad guys.
Sometimes if feels like bad guys win the most.
But you can be a good guy, a winner…
You’ve got the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
They’re never gonna leave or forget you.
They wanna live forever in your heart.
Then you’ll always be one of the good guys
And God will keep the bad guys far apart.
