Part 6 of the series “Worldviews.” This message focuses on the fact that all Christians (all who are called) are driven by the purposes of God. Does that mean we are perfect, or that we will not face hardships? By no means. Can you remember the last time your day was completely a mess, where nothing went right? In days like that we tell others, “Nothing is going right today,” or “ When it rains it pours.” How many can relate to that? In it all, we are reminded by the Holy Spirit: Rom 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.” You ask, “All things?” The answer is consistent: Yes! All things work together (with a lot of other things) for our good. Who does this apply to? Can you share this text with your unbelieving family member? No. This promise is ONLY for God’s called out ones. What does that mean? Those who are called are called according to HIS purposes not ours. You were called for a reason, & that reason is that God partners with fallen man, fills them with His Spirit, & directs them to continue His work on the earth. How are you doing with His call in your life?
