Under Gods Command
More than Conquerors

Romans 8:29-30 For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the likeness of his Son, that he might be the first born among many brothers. And those he predestined, he also called; those he called, he also justified; those he justified, he also glorified.

Some believe these verses mean that before the beginning of the world, God chose certain people to receive his gift of salvation. They point to verses like Ephesians 1:11 that says we are “predestined according to the plan of him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of his will.” Others believe that God foreknew those who would respond to him and upon those he set his mark (predestined). What is clear is that God’s purpose for people was not an afterthought; it was settled before the foundation of the world. People are to serve and honor God. If you have believed in Christ, you can rejoice in the fact that God has always known you; God’s love is eternal. His wisdom and power are supreme. He will guide and protect you until you one-day stand in his presence.

Lets Bring it Home: What is God’s purpose for you, or are you living out his purpose? If not, what is getting in your way from you doing God’s will in your life?
