From Bitter To Better

Romans 8:28–30 The Message
That’s why we can be so sure that every detail in our lives of love for God is worked into something good. God knew what he was doing from the very beginning. He decided from the outset to shape the lives of those who love him along the same lines as the life of his Son. The Son stands first in the line of humanity he restored. We see the original and intended shape of our lives there in him. After God made that decision of what his children should be like, he followed it up by calling people by name. After he called them by name, he set them on a solid basis with himself. And then, after getting them established, he stayed with them to the end, gloriously completing what he had begun.
Book: Romans Theme: Paid in Full Information: This Roman soldier (note the “Row-man” in the background!) is experiencing the Keyword of the Book of Romans, Paid in Full. So when you think of Romans, remember that, like the soldier, our debt of sin has been Paid in Full! Romans, revealing both the heart and intellect of Paul, is the most systematic and profound presentation of the righteousness of God in the Bible. Paul shows that because all men are sinners, the righteousness of God requires their condemnation. But because God is righteous, He alone can provide, enact, and accept as adequate a payment to satisfy His own demands. That our debt is paid in full produces Paul’s worshipful doxology where he proclaims the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God (11:33–36). Then, in light of God’s grace, he exhorts believers to live in a manner consistent with being justified freely by grace (3:24), as living sacrifices to Him (12:1–2).
Exclusive restaurant with the wonderful decor. Satin covered walls , Waterford crystal glassware, Gold tableware, the finest of China, Duncanfire furniture, Fragrant aroma, Plush carpet and Melodious music from a talented Ensemble .
two waiters collided one carrying coffee that stain the satin wall. There was a famous artist among the guest of the grand opening. Seeing the disappointment on the owners face, got up from his table and turned the ugly stain into a beautiful picture. That’s what Jesus did and does for all who come to Him by faith. Some come to Him broken but leave blessed, confused but leave converted, dying but leave delivered, frustrated but leave fulfilled, grieving but leave grateful, hurt but leave happy, sad but leave saved, troubled but leave trusting. I tell you Jesus can turn your bitter to better.
