The apostle, in this tremendously sweeping statement, is speaking about things external to us, and not what transpires within a man's own breast. It was a dark day in the experience of the disciples when Christ was crucified; but His sufferings were the purchase of their salvation.(J. Why to them that love God? Herod, Pilate, etc., resolved not to work with God, yet they did "whatsoever God's hand and counsel determined before to be done.". )Christian securityT.

Does not the exquisite adaptation of outward nature to minister to our animal senses, physical wants, desire for knowledge, and love of the beautiful show that the Creator intended to make His moral creatures happy?

Help God to work for you.The security of believersD. And there is much need of this. In all of it, He is working for our ultimate good, to conform us to the image of His Son, who learned obedience through the things that He suffered (Rom. ", 1.

It was a dark day in the experience of Moses when his mother could no longer hide him; but God watched over him, and preserved him from harm. This love is —(1) Paramount. But let the observer set himself to watch from day to day the busy work as it goes on; let him patiently examine, not only the minutest details, but also try to obtain a view of the general scope of the whole, and he will not be long in finding out that some superior mind regulates all, and that every stroke of every workman is conducive to the same ultimate effect. 3.

The man who has no skill or knowledge has his boat struck by every wave, and ships sea after sea, until at last he suffers shipwreck. saith he, "I do not call gold good, but faith! "From this our word "energy" is derived. Listen to that flood of music that at the touch of a single hand rolls from a hundred pipes. But loving God also describes that clinging to God as a child clings to his father, especially at the approach of peril, and which, even at the time of chastisement, never dreams of questioning His love. Steele. Little is said of angels, but names are applied to them taken from our highest ideas of might and dignity (Colossians 1:16). He set himself against God's law of true usefulness, and so in trying to save his life he loses it. It is the same in the moral sphere. THE UNIVERSAL METHOD — "all things work together." Distinguish those two things, and light already begins to come. All the provisions of nature are destined for the good of God's children. The viewless gases are never idle; the particles of dust beneath our feet have run successive careers of varied labour; the world itself is a colossal work, and its motion is a ceaseless flight. But you will answer, Have all Christians the admirable simplicity of that child?

It changes the aspect of every conflict of life. Troubles and afflictions and blows that are sent are useless unless they make you patient to your fellows and submissive to your lot. That is not the good for which things are working, But if we go deeper, and interpret by the good, the larger life, the maturer spirit, the holier existence, then there is a conspiracy in all things without to help us.II. But rest assured that if you love God all things will work together for your good. I find it easy to believe that all things have worked together for my good. We see that "things work," but we cannot see how they "work together." For what are they raised to this height? But He brings those that love Him into such relation to the laws that they turn, as ten thousand rays of light from objects round you to the pupil of your eye, unto his benefit. Be patient and trustful, for He is making you after a beautiful pattern, even the image of the Only Begotten. From the text I learn that "all things" act —I. What to them the bounties of providence? With the fallen hosts men labour and combine. III. Look at our history. The thunderbolt that prostrates some sheltering tree lets heaven shine on a spot of earth where it never shone before. "All thinks work," not frictionally, or at random, but "together." While the world, the flesh, and the devil tempt, the Father sympathises, the Lord Jesus intercedes, the Holy Spirit waits to "guide into all the truth," angels minister, and "all things work together for good. This Christian reading of life has been the death of death. SPECIFICALLY — to "them that love God." "His purpose.". But while all things work together for good to those that love the Lord, we are told upon the same authority, "the way of the ungodly shall perish! "Work." , commenting on this passage, included under it even sin itself. "Lo, all these things worketh God oftentimes with men, to bring back his soul from the pit, to be enlightened with the light of the living" (Job 33:29, 30). Why does denying that truth not help? But suffer me, in turn, to distrust your humility. If there be any true judgment to be made of men, with respect to their spiritual condition, from their circumstances of life, we ought rather to judge in favour of the afflicted and unhappy, for there are several things spoken very much to their advantage in Scripture.(R. David says, "No good thing will He withhold from them that walk uprightly." Everything contrary to holiness in the life of the believer is a frustration of the Divine purpose.3. , commenting on this passage, included under it even sin itself. It is thus that the great drama of a nation's politics may hinge on the veriest bagatelle. Then one might see what he was after, for it had not shown upon the outer surface of the rock. The manner in which they fall upon different men lies with the individual soul. 28).2. He regards the bondage of Israel, the crucifixion of Christ, the fall of the Roman Empire, and the dark periods of the world's history as necessary links in the chain of God's providential dealings. Abraham, Moses, David, Isaiah, Paul, and John operate upon us every moment. God puts His jewels on the friction-wheels only to polish them. These laws constitute the will of our heavenly Father. It must be in everything and for ever. (3) The conditions of this Divine approval must be conceived of in harmony with the nature of Him who does the approving. All things work together for His plans. MARK THE WEALTH OF THE PROMISE: "All things."1. The primary and the higher purpose is, that the just may live; that their excellencies may be revealed, and their character consummated; that the love of God may shine in them; and that they may accomplish the great end of their being, which is, to glorify God, and to enjoy Him for ever.3. For good. Life reveals itself in activity. Spiritually considered, when we talk about profit and loss, success or failure, very often we know not what we say. DISCRIMINATING IN THEIR APPLICATION. Well! "Are they not all ministering spirits?" Another is the only one who escapes from a shipwreck; he lets it be understood that God had cares and tenderness only for him. The way, however, of goodness carries its security, for the attainment of its end, in its own moral power. The great question that shall shape your eternity and mine is, Do we love God? Even "sin" is evil "work," and "death" is "the wages" of its ill desert.4. The viewless gases are never idle; the particles of dust beneath our feet have run successive careers of varied labour; the world itself is a colossal work, and its motion is a ceaseless flight. Be patient and trustful, for He is making you after a beautiful pattern, even the image of the Only Begotten. God is wise, and cannot err; He is good, and will not.V. Let us not forget that the purpose is not by reason of the love in us, but that the love is in us by reason of the purpose. This form of statement undeniably implies a real sacrifice on the part of the Father in giving up His Son.2. All things work for our good. If this be so, what should be our great concern? That pure white blossom is the cherry; that pink and white one is the apple. MARK THE WEALTH OF THE PROMISE: "All things."1. The soul destitute of love to God is in antagonism to the whole system of nature. "Never mind! Robertson.

And if all things are working together for our good, what reason have we to envy the wicked in their riches and prosperity? The mind may become dark, and need enlightening; the heart hard, and need softening; the life barren, and need pruning.2. Now this error manifests itself under forms which are singularly hurtful to Christian beliefs. Little events are the hinges upon which great events turn. O. Peck, D.D. And after the same manner as these emblems and illustrations represent, all things in Providence concur for the final salvation of those who love God, and are the called according to His purpose.III. The world hath an object in its wildest movement. The man who has no skill or knowledge has his boat struck by every wave, and ships sea after sea, until at last he suffers shipwreck. Walking is an exercise that I need very much. The child would, perhaps, make its way out of the harbour and into the ocean, and be carried away and lost, if there were no guiding power in the boat but its own. The apostle lifts his hand to where the white-robed hosts are praising God for ever. This truth is all through the Bible, but let me give you two examples. That is not the Christian view of God's creation. God, you say, is too great to make all things work together for our good. As He loves His own eternal purposes of truth and righteousness, He must especially love and honour them who are fulfilling those holy purposes. "Them that love God." Is it natural to suppose that God gave no destiny to man? What to them the bounties of providence? "(Elias Nason. THE PROMISE IS ONLY TO THEM THAT LOVE GOD.1. The apostle lifts his hand to where the white-robed hosts are praising God for ever. This evil world can deprive us of our possessions. —for, still, alas! Expect not that all things will work together to make thee rich; it is just possible they may all work to make thee poor. World balances world. All things work together for His plans. Lastly, we may say that that which has been reckoned the great enemy of man — Death itself — is among the things that work together for good to them that love God. O. Peck, D.D. As Charles Wesley put it, our will is “fast bound in sin and nature’s night.”, But this invokes the question, “If God is absolutely sovereign and our will is not totally free, then are we puppets or robots? God, therefore, who knows the frailty of our nature, is always pleased to send His staff with His rod, and to grant us such strength and protection as may support us in all dangers and carry us through all adversities.Conclusion:1. (2) The Christian understands by the word spiritual good. It is clear mountain air. There is great force in the original verb, "work together." Look around, above, beneath, and all things work —(1) In opposition to idleness. I return to the word "work" — to notice the tense of it. Douglas Moo (The Epistle to the Romans [Eerdmans], p. 530) paraphrases the flow of thought in 8:28-30 as follows: “We know that all things are working for good for those of us who love God; and we know this is so because we who love God are also those who have been summoned by God to enter into relationship with him, a summons that is in accordance with God’s purpose to mold us into the image of Christ and to glorify us.”.

To hear them, man ought never to seek his own good. For good. (3) In the life of Christ. 35-39).

Take anything single and apart, and it seemeth to be against us. Let us also suppress our murmurings at the allotments of Providence. O. Peck, D.D. "Ah!"

The darkness that comes across our sky is often but the shadow of a great blessing coming from heaven and passing between us and the sun. Question believers, and they will tell you that in the severest trials they have discovered signs of the Divine goodness, Now, even when outwardly all seems to be identical in the life of him who loves God and of him who does not, we must admit that events will work upon men according to the mind with which they are accepted.

Consider the list of forces which seek to wrest the believer from its gracious grasp (vers. 2. Men and angels "work together," They are our "fellow-servants," and are "sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation." Thus also He knows how to blend the bright and dark things in human life to produce the most holy characters. If you suffer with Christ, you shall reign with Him. In short, the earth is one, and made up of contradictory elements. Thus compelled to dispose of his expensive establishment, change his style of living altogether, and, with his wife and four children, take to "short commons," his spirits did not desert him. How many aids, instruments, influences, are perpetually provided to promote our spiritual welfare? A man whose soul is animated and sanctified by the love of God, what can he see, or hear, or encounter, from which, under the aid of the Divine Spirit, he absolutely cannot extract any good? )The guidance of our PilotA landsman at sea understands little how a vessel is worked; he sees her often heading almost back from her course, making strange and contrary traverses — sometimes stripped of her canvas when to him all seems fair; sometimes strong sails set upon her when the storm is driving fiercely; yet he trusts in the presiding skill, nor would he dare to give, much less countermand, an order; for in the extremity of his own ignorance he has the comfort of knowing that the pilot knows. 34).3.

As He loves His own eternal purposes of truth and righteousness, He must especially love and honour them who are fulfilling those holy purposes. There is great force in the original verb, "work together." The idle man is an exception to God's rule. We divide life into active and passive, into busy and quiet. He has also encouraged us with the truth that the Holy Spirit is helping us in our weakness by praying for us according to the will of God (8:26-27).
