Called According to God's Purpose!

From The Heart of Pastor Shane (May 30, 2019)

One of my favorite passages is Romans 8:28, where the Bible says: “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.”  The important thing to note in this verse is the statement referring to Christians/believers: “we are called according to God’s purpose.”

My friend, you and I have a God-given purpose in this life.  Everything that is happening in life and on this planet is moving toward a grand and glorious conclusion.  God’s purpose is for His own children to love Him and allow that love to be the aim of their lives.

We must realize that this scripture implies that  God works all things for good, not that all things work out.  In life there will always be suffering, pain, loss, sorrow, and sin.  But if you love God and have been called according to His purpose then everything will eventually work out for your good.  This is a divine promise from God that assures all believers that God works in their lives for the His ultimate good.  Amen!
