Romans 8:28 "And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose."
What is 'good' in this passage?
What is the purpose of God that He works for the good of those who love him?
Verse 29 says "For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the likeness of his son…"
We get to be restored to be conformed to the likeness of his son when we believe Jesus is our Lord.
We get to be restored to the status when God created us before the fall when we love God through Jesus Christ. We become a child of God. And God sees Jesus in us and says'‘it is good' as He said at the creation.
Our faith is not about what we are DOING, but believing what God has DONE for us. Wow! Hallelujah! When God allowed my sorrow and pain to bring me to the cross, I quietly knelt in His presence. I could not ask for the reason of my sorrow and suffering. There were no words before Him. I met a God who said that He loves me even to the death. Heaven is closer to me now than ever before. My son’s death connected me with the reality of sin and death, and led me closer to my only hope, Jesus Christ. Now, I am forgiven and have hope that will see Jesus and my son some day at a beautiful place where there is no more pain, no more tears and no more fear. Nothing can separate us from the Love of Christ.
