Working for Our Good
A Sermon on Romans 8:28-30
And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose. For those whom he foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, in order that he might be the firstborn among many brothers. And those whom he predestined he also called, and those whom he called he also justified, and those whom he justified he also glorified. (ESV)
Do you feel like life is spinning out of control? Where is God when terribly hard things are happening in our lives? Is God against us? Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones considers Romans 8:28 “one of the most remarkable statements in the whole range of Scripture. The ultimate doctrine—written for our consolation and edification.” The Apostle Paul wrote, “And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.” This promise is not for everybody. However, for the Christian, ALL things are working together for good for YOU. All things? Yes! God is overruling everything in the whole cosmos for your good benefit. How can this be? How can things that seem to work against us actually be working for our good? In this sermon, the Good Doctor answers the question with six compelling reasons that will reassure and strengthen your soul throughout any future seasons of trials and sufferings. Listen and be encouraged.
