There Are No “Ifs” In Romans 8:28-30


The Reformed Reader

Romans 8:17-39: The Final Perseverance of the Saints For me, one of the most comforting things in Scripture is the fact that there are no question marks or “ifs” in God’s plan to save his people from sin, hell, and death.  No one can snatch me out of Christ’s sovereign hand and nothing can separate me from God’s love in Christ (John 10:28-30, Rom. 8:38-39).  My salvation is safe and secure because God is strong and sovereign.  Lloyd-Jones echoes well this in his exposition of Romans 8:28-30.

“This promise [that all things work together for the good of those who love God – v28] must be true in light of God’s purpose with respect to his people.  In other words, the statement is not that all things work together for good ‘as long as we love God.’  The statement is true of us because we are ‘the called according to his purpose.’  This is a most important distinction.”
