Romans 8:28 says: we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose. And it goes on to say that this means that nothing can separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus. In every hardship, distress, tribulation, no matter the enemy, we are more than conquerors. Christians do merely endure, they conquer because Christ is in every moment and God is working every detail out for good.
This is gloriously true for every child of God, but it is the kind of truth that has to be worked out day by day, moment by moment. Faith clings to this promise and proclaims it in every hardship. When there is tension in the family or at work, sin to confront or confess, your answer must be God is doing good here, Christ is with me to conquer here. Or if you look out at the world around you and see the insanity and tyranny of unbelief and perversion, look with faith and see God at work weaving an unbelievably good story, and thank Him for putting you in it at this moment in order to win, in order to succeed for his glory.
All of this means that Christians must have a far bigger view of God and a far smaller view of their own understanding or plans. God’s plan is better. God’s way of winning is far better than anything we might come up with. Nothing can separate us from His love. Therefore, we are in His love now, in every detail of our circumstances. And these gifts of bread and wine proclaim this to us. He has sworn by his own life, by the body and blood of His Son.
Come and welcome to Jesus Christ.
