“And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.”
King James Version (KJV)
Arthur Gutierrez's comment on 2020-10-06 21:14:36:
I truly believe this passage goes beyond the gift of salvation, and the work of sanctification by the power of the Holy Spirit which by Grace is beautiful beyond measure. But the understanding comes from the last part of the verse understanding God's Purpose. It is so easy to say "All things work together for good to those who love God. But it is working through God's purposes for your life that takes greater faith, greater peace, greater joy, greater contentment in our circumstances, trials and testing that one can say God works all things for good according to His purposes for me, rather than to speak this passage up in the air as wishful thinking?

Did your father recover from this cancer? Is he a believer now? Would like to know so I can pray for him.

Richard's comment on 2014-10-25 09:25:35:
there are two types of obedience one is sola fide and the other is sola fide plus cooperation. One is without any input on our part...it 's an alien Righteousness, forensic, and an extrinsic Righteousness accomplished by Another and we apprehend that Righteousness by Faith. It is a "passive Righteousness " and This Righteousness is, at The Right Hand of The Father, in The Person of Christ Jesus The other is also by Faith, but includes an "active righteousness " We participate by actively cooperating with The Holy Spirit in the building of a righteous character. He Who has begun a good work in you will complete that work " Our part is "overcoming the sins which so easily doth beset us " This is The Holy Spirit 's work within us...and it is the work of a lifetime. We cooperate by allowing The Holy Spirit to remove those spots that we cannot. This is where the Sola Fide comes in...we believe "that He Who has begun a good work " will complete that work. Paul say "not that I have arrived, but I press on " It begins the same day we are Justified and both Justification and Sanctification continues until we are Glorified. Whether we die, and we are sleeping...for He does call it a sleep, or, we are alive when Christ Comes the Second Time, and together with those who have been in the grave awaiting The Trump of God to awake them we rise together to be forever with our LORD.

All things means everything accouunted for and THE CALLED means those who have been washed by the BLOOD OF JESUS

My dad is a non believer and was recently diagnosed with throat cancer. He is at the point where he is angry at God. I think he should read this verse. Pleas help me pray for him.

Although,we are getting at the height of gross darkness on earth,that shouldn 't detare us,but should encourage us of our imminent departure into the kingdom of our dear God,arise and shine,for we are created for such a time as this.

Sometimes will find it so difficult to understand how God work things out for his beloved The Isrealites for instance God lead them to the sea side where seems no way to escape from king Pharoe Even they hardly Believed God s word All what God require from us is total obedient to His commandmets and all our trials in life shall definately turn into testimony

In whatever situation God has a blessing for His own no matter how bad and incomprehensible it appears Those who know God and love Him can draw out reasons to be thankful Even the reigning killing of Christians around the world confirms to the believers the certainty of Christ Words and therefore encourages them and urges them on

It is by faith that we earn Salvation Justivication Having been justified Salvation is freely given by Jesus so that in Him all good that we need is done in us Anen

And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God to them who are the called according to his purpose I take the Word literally It says ALL things so good and bad things Also applies to THEM that love God so it ONLY applies to those of us that LOVE GOD Lastly it is intended for those WHO ARE CALLED are we not all called for HIS purpose I believe we are but the main point of this scripture is that we must 1st LOVE God in order for all things to work for our good

It means that we are ALL God and God is ALL of us and ALL THINGS. Everything in existence is connected by Gods energy. Without God there would not be Life. Without life, there would be nothing. No such thing as the big bang theory. This is only scientists trying to find and answer to everything. The only answer is the WORD OF GOD.

I think there is similarities between this scripture ROM. 8:28 and that of ECC.3.
Cheryl C.'s comment on 2013-11-27 07:27:16:
I agree with Harold Caffee's comment : Romans 8:28 is talking about spiritual things: All of Romans 8 is talking about spiritual things: Thank God for Life in Christ Jesus & His many Blessings.

As a believer we face trials and sometimes things do happen. But as long as we are faithfully to the Lord He will work it out to our good. In other words hold onto the unchanging hand of Jesus and it will all work out.

All things won't be good, but He'll work it for good AMEN.

It's the word of God, there shouldn't be any controversy

Dis verse a soul lifter,it reminds us about Gods luv ad promises. Teling us about faith ad love because if you love God you wil have faith in him which will make you be among his chosen ones and i believd ALL THINGS WILL WORK TOGETHER FOR GOOD FOR YOU whether trials or blessings
Harold Caffee's comment on 2013-08-10 11:26:21:
Why do people ***ume that the "all things working together for good" is talking about something that happens to you or someone else that is bad? I think it's talking about spiritual things working together for our good if you are a child of God.....Think about all the things that belong to us as children of God....Salvation, the Name of Jesus, the Word of God, the Holy Spirit, prayer, Worship, Praise and the list goes on and on....Why ***ume he's talking about bad things happening to us....Surely, all bad things that happens to us can't all be good...The Devil stealing, killing and destroying us can't be working for our good..Jesus came to give us life...Now that's working for our good...
