Romans Devotional- Day 44


SCRIPTURES TO READ: Romans 8:28-32

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. 29 For those whom he foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, in order that he might be the firstborn among many brothers. 30 And those whom he predestined he also called, and those whom he called he also justified, and those whom he justified he also glorified. 31 What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? 32 He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things?


QUESTIONS TO ANSWER:

1. To whom is the promise made that “all things work together for good”? (V28)
2. Read through verse 29-30 and trace the progression of God’s work starting with “foreknew” all the way through to “glorified”.
3. What was purpose of God’s work of predestination? (V29)
4. Far from being a theological debate on salvation, Paul uses this chain of progression to encourage believers. What truth do you think his question in verse 30 is intended to convey to his readers?
5. How can believers know that God is indeed for them? (V31)
