|万事效力/All Things for Good|
Introduction：When your mom is going to make a nice dessert, she usually gathers quite a few ingredients. If you were to taste each ingredient, would they all taste the same？No, and in fact some of them might taste really strange, and some of them really bad! But when your mom mixes them all together, all these different things work together to make something very good! That seems impossible, but it's true, just like our Bible verse today!
Presentation：Romans 8：28 says, " ...we know that all things work together for good to them that love God..."
Explanation："All things" means all the good and bad things that happen to you. Maybe your teacher was unfair to you, or you were not allowed to go with the other kids to that game you really were excited about. Perhaps you've had sickness, or someone you really love has died. God says, ALL THINGS work together for good.
Application："To them that love God" means to those that have believed on the Lord Jesus. If you have asked the Lord Jesus to come into your life and you are living for Him, this is a wonderful promise for you. You may never in this life understand why some things happen to you, but you can trust God's promise that He will take even the bad things and make them work for your good.
If you have never believed on the Lord Jesus, this promise is not for you, for no matter how good things work out for you, God says the end will not be good. Those who do not believe on the Lord Jesus will be separated from God forever in a terrible place of suffering and torment called hell. But God loves you and has the wonderful gift of eternal life waiting for you to receive! Won't you go now to "How to Be a Child of God, " and follow those steps？Repetition：When you see someone in the kitchen mixing ingredients this week, why not say your verse out loud and thank the Lord that He takes even the bad things and makes them work out for your good! Now let's put some music to this verse!
We know that all things, Work together for good,To them that love God, Romans 8：28.
