Deeper Christian Bible Study in Ephesians • Study 23
Have you ever had a bad day?
One of those days where nothing goes right, circumstances press you down, and you're not sure whether you'll make it through to the night?
Perhaps it's been longer than a day – financial struggles, family pressures, chaos, circumstances, or things seemingly out of control.
In such circumstances, we tend to forget that Romans 8:28 is still true today – that God is working all things for good to those who love Him and are called according to His purpose.
When we as Christians grab a hold of this truth, our lives and perspectives will radically change. God is indeed working all things according to His good purpose in Christ.
In this expositional sermon from Ephesians 1:11-12, Nathan Johnson looks at the idea that we have been predestined according to the purpose of Him who works all things according to the counsel of His own will – and shows how though God doesn't cause everything, He is using everything for our sanctification and for the praise of His glory. And knowing this, changes everything.
