Reflection

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.

Romans 8:28

A divine invitation into cooperation, a relationship and a friendship founded on love, a calling and purpose in life. One short sentence packed with so much beauty and depth. Romans 8:28 is like a closing chord of a grand opera vibrating with million sounds of the orchestra, singers and a choir.

Faith, work and life founded on the love for God transforms them into a ministry for “God works for the good” through which Christ transforms and forges and shapes his kingdom in our fractured and wounded world. Life and faith founded on the love for God is not a mere chain of events, an instinct to survive and to get along, build safety and security in a brutal and cold world, but a joyful calling, purpose-driven life, bright and beautiful experience of living in the presence of God.
