Issue 485 – Verse of the Week

April 8th – April 14th, 2021


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

Importance of Words

It’s a funny thing about words. In the English language, as in many other languages across the globe, words can take on different meanings. Time and culture can also change the meanings of words. Those who translated (and continue translating) the Greek New Testament into our common language find that some words require explanation. But one word in today’s verse — all — when translated from the Greek, means “all.” That’s everything. The entirety of it. Not a scintilla omitted. Nothing more to be had. So you, as a follower of Christ and one who loves God, can know that there is nothing left out. ALL is being worked together for good. It is for your good and according to the purposes of God. Trust Him with ALL today. He hasn’t failed you yet!
