All Things Work Together For Good

Text: Romans 8:28

What This Verse Does Not Say:

  • This doesn’t guarantee material prosperity as a reward for faithfulness (Philippians 4:12)
  • This doesn’t guarantee good health for the faithful (2 Timothy 4:20)
  • This doesn’t mean that every coincidence we deem to be good is God’s direct working (Matthew 5:45)
  • This doesn’t mean that if our physical circumstances are bad that they will eventually improve (1 Corinthians 15:19)

Remember the Context

  • Paul is discussing spiritual matters (v. 6, 23-25, 29-30)
  • This verse is talking about our spiritual good

God Has Done His Part (v. 29-31)

  • Foreknowledge
  • Predestination
  • Calling
  • Justification
  • Glorification

We Must Do Our Part

  • Those who love God” are those who obey Him (1 John 5:3; Romans 1:5)
