Scripture: Romans 8:28-29
Message Summary: If you are like me, you have had moments in your life when you can’t help but ask, “God, where are you?” Even worse, is when you find yourself asking, “God, what good are you?” or “God, are you really good?” After all, we think “If you are a good God and I’m trying to be a good person, why do these bad things happen to me?” Then to make things worse, a pastor like me steps up to a platform and looks at people like you and says, “Don’t worry. Things that are breaking bad will eventually be breaking good.” My late dad used to say to me all the time, “Son, I’ve learned it all works out for the good in the end.” Honestly, that sounds cold, calloused, and even somewhat condescending when it is actually meant to be comforting. But what if it is true? What if things that are breaking bad will ultimately break good? That’s what we’re going to look at in today’s message as dive into Romans 8:28-29.
