Romans 8:29 – What It Means To be Predestined

What It Means To be Predestined – In Romans 8:29 Paul talks about the process of salvation, which is commonly referred to as the ‘golden chain’. In this verse he starts off by telling us that those whom God has foreknown, he has also predestined. In the previous sermon we talked about what it means to be foreknown by God, but what does it mean to be predestined? Listen to the sermon as the full meaning of predestined is explained.

 

Romans 8:29 – What It Means That God Foreknew The Elect

Romans 8:29 – What It Means That God Foreknew The Elect – In Romans 8:29-30 Paul describes the process of salvation, which is often referred to as the golden chain. The first link of this chain is that God foreknew those whom he predestined, called, justified and glorifies. But what does it mean for God to foreknow someone? Many have come to understand it means God looked down through time and saw all those whom would choose to come to His son by their own free will and He therefore predestined, called, justified and glorifies them. Listen as it is explained in detail what the term foreknew actually means.

Romans 8:28 – All Things Work According To His Purpose

Romans 8:28 – All Things Work According To His Purpose – As Christians we may at times wonder why things occur in our lives, why we have the sickness we do, the trial and challenges. We may even wonder why our sins seem to constantly be exposed to us, why there is no let up at times and why life can be so hard. We see in this sermon that all things occur and work according to His purpose and God has told us what that is. Also as a result of that, we have to ask ourselves, are the things we do and the decisions we make, all for His purpose or for our own?

Romans 8:24-25 The Hope of What is To Come

The Hope of What is To Come

Two weeks ago we began looking at this section of Romans 8 where Paul gives us numerous reasons why we must preserve till the end, and we started off by looking at Romans 8 v1 8-23 where Paul outlines for us the wonderful truth of the glory that is to come, and the glorious new bodies we will have. And the fact that there is truly hope for us in suffering – this is why we must persevere.So we talked about what is to come what we can joyfully and confidently expect once we are in glory with Christ.But what about until then? How are we to be, how are we to believe, what are we to focus on?
