- Paul makes a bold assertion in verse 28: "And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose." In your own words, how would you explain what he means by this? Are there times or circumstances that have made this hard to believe?
- In the verses that follow 28, how does Paul support this claim that "all things work together for good?" Specifically, how is this related to things like God's plan (v.33), Christ's death (v.34) and present circumstances (v.35)?
- Christians can sometimes understand their faith narrowly and only though the lens of justification (that God accepts them as righteous because of Jesus). How does this passage help us to have have a much bigger view of salvation?
- What practical and tangible difference does it make to know that nothing can separate us from the love of God? How should this affect the way we live?
