Romans 8:28

Romans 8:28 - "And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose."

Romans 8:28 is an anchor of hope for the Christian that someone has called "a soft pillow for a tired heart." This verse alone will take a lifetime for us just to begin to comprehend it. Here are four implications about God that must be true in the light of Romans 8:28. I believe the rest of the Bible will bear them out as well.


1. God is immutable (unchanging), for if He were constantly changing how could we "know that all things work together for good."

2. God is sovereign and all-powerful, else He could not work all things together for good.
3. God is compassionate, else He would not work all things together for good.
4. God is determinate (having a definite counsel and purpose), else He would not work all things together for good to them who are the called according to his purpose.

5. There are some who are called according to his purpose.
