All Things

by Greg Laurie on Mar 3, 2019

Join Pastor Greg Laurie for his message, “All Things,” from our series, “Relentless Grace: Paul’s Letter to the Romans.” In this sermon at Harvest Christian Fellowship, Greg digs deep into the infamous Scripture from Romans 8:28–29.

According to BibleGatway.com, the most searched Scriptures are:

  1. John 3:16
  2. Psalm 23:4
  3. Jeremiah 29:11
  4. Romans 8:28
  5. Philippians 4:13

“We know that all things work together for good to those that love God…” (Romans 8:28)

When you begin to doubt the love of God and if things are really “working together for good,” take a long look at Jesus dying on the cross for you. This does not mean things naturally work together for good, but that God makes them work together for good.

We don’t believe in dumb luck but in God’s guidance. We don’t believe in coincidence, but rather in Providence.

Question: What is good?

Answer: Good is what God approves.

There is no higher standard of goodness than God’s own perfect character and His approval of whatever, is consistent with that character and purpose.

  • Psalm 119:71
  • Psalm 119:75

“A sick bed often teaches more than a sermon.”—Thomas Watson

  • “You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good.” (Genesis 50:20)
  • “With God, all things are possible.” (Matthew 19:26)
  • “I can do all things through Christ…” (Philippians 4:13)
  • “Behold, I am making all things new.” (Revelation 21:5)

Sometimes a disappointment can turn into an appointment from God. Sometimes good things can distract us spiritually and make us self-confident. The classic example of a man who suffered greatly and saw good was Joseph.
