Romans 13:1 Love Wins

Romans 8:28 We know that all things work together for good for those who love God, who are called according to his purpose.

In a way, this passage is the fountainhead, the cornerstone, of all God’s promises. “Called according to his purpose” implies a heart desire and an intentionality about living in accord with God’s ways. We all come up short but the desire is real and we keep on keeping on towards growing into living by God’s principles and yielding to God’s Spirit. We do so because we trust in God’s love and we love God in response, albeit always well short of perfection or even consistency. And in this, we’re assured that God can and will ultimately bring good from even the darkest threads of our lives and circumstances. The God and author of all creation is indeed creative enough to follow through on so great and foundational a promise. Love wins!
