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. What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things?
Romans 8:28-32 ESV
I am listening to a 6 part series by John Piper that covers Romans 8:28-32. Romans 8:28 is a Scripture often used and often given when those in the church are going through things. To be honest, I decided to listen to this series because of things going on within my life that are a bit… hectic. John dives into the Scriptures to give more than just a surface look at this passage. I wanted to share Part 1 in this entry in hopes that it would bring hope and clarity to the hearers.
