Life is Hard, God is Good (Romans 8:28)

One of the most well known verses in the Bible is Romans 8:28. “And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good for those who are called according to his purpose.” This verse brings a tremendous amount of comfort to our lives when we face hard times. However, at points it can be hard to believe that God could ever use our negative circumstances for good. This message unpacks this verse in order to discover something amazing about God – His providential care over our lives. Romans 8:28 is a truth that is displayed and exemplified in both the Old and New Testament and seen best in the crucifixion and resurrection of Christ. Jesus’ death and resurrection was the ultimate example of God using evil in order to bring about his good purpose.
