Power Verse # 3 - Romans 8:28
"All things work together for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose."
This verse affirms the goodness of God to all who have accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and savior, and who have surrendered their lives to Him. They are called children of God and co-heirs with Jesus Christ in the kingdom of heaven. But this does not mean that God's children will be immune from trials and persecutions. As their characters are molded to suit after the pattern of God's perfect vessels, to do good works and glorify His name, the children of God will undergo sufferings, trials and persecutions. These are not punishments but a process of purification and molding of character. And God gave man this verse that reassures that whatever happens in the lives of His children, these are all good and their purposes will be revealed in God's perfect time when God's children are finally transformed from glory to glory until they reached the whole measure of the fullness of Jesus Christ. This is a verse of tender reassurance of God's love, mercy and grace to His beloved children.
