"And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to his purpose." Romans 8:28
IN JESUS TODAY!
As it pleases God, so it is that those who love him will benefit. In other words, everything is working to his pleasure to benefit us because we love him. So what is the benefit to loving God? The many benefits to loving God begin with knowing that everything that happens to us and around us is working to our good, and not against us! Things in life aren't working to our good because we are better than others, things aren't working to our good because we have done so many things right and rarely make mistakes, as we read, "There is none that does good, no not one." Romans 3:12b, good isn't what comes to us because we earn it by our works or our deeds. Good comes to us because we love God. Some would argue, good happens to those who do not love God, here they are mistaken, grace may happen to them, but unless they love God, there is no eternal good that will come to them, it will all be burnt up in the fire at the end. Because we set our hearts upon Jesus and believe, we have been saved by grace and are called unto him for his purposes. It is because of his purposes, and because of his love for us, that God's eternal good comes to us, and is always at work for us, in this lifetime, and the eternal lifetime to come!
It is by this continual working of good toward us that we are strengthened and will endure unto the end, and by this we are loosened and set free from the sin, and from the condemnation that is in this world! Not by our works, lest any many should boast, but by God's great grace, because we have set our love on him!
