For he was a good man, and full of the Holy Ghost and of faith: and much people was added to the Lord.
A good man is —
A MAN WHO EARNESTLY DESIRES THE ADVANCEMENT OF THE DIVINE GLORY
AND THE ESTABLISHMENT OF HIS KINGDOM.
“None of us liveth to himself, and no man dieth to himself,” etc. This desire is not confined to the duties of prayer and praise. The good man is actuated by a holy solicitude that every part of his conduct may be so entirely in agreement with the law of Christ, as to curb and restrain the wickedness of the ungodly, and to strengthen and encourage the hearts of true believers in the diligent pursuit and practice of true holiness.
