All Things for Good

“And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.” –Romans 8:28

Romans 8:28, a verse that is treasured by many Christians, was part of our sermon text this past Sunday. During the sermon, I shared several quotes from Puritan Thomas Watson’s work entitled, All Things for Good which is based on this verse. I had a couple of folks ask for the quotes afterwards. So I decided I would post some of the quotes I shared along with others here for everyone.

“If it is good for us, we shall have it; if it is not good for us, then the withholding of it is good.” (pg. 16)

“There is more in the promises to comfort than in the world to perplex.” (pg. 17)

“Better is that temptation which humbles me, than that duty which makes me proud.” (pg. 35)

“In this life, when one temptation is over, another comes.” (pg. 37)

“What a blessed condition is a true believer in! When he dies, he goes to God; and while he lives, everything shall do him good.” (pg. 56)

“Affliction is a bitter root, but it bears sweet fruit.” (pg. 57)

“If God does not give you that which you like, He will give you that which you need.” (pg. 52)

“There are no sins God’s people are more subject to than unbelief and impatience…Let this text produce patience…” (pg. 61)

“Consider, that if God makes all things to turn to our good, how right it is that we should make all things tend to His glory!” (pg. 63)

“Oh wretch! Did Christ bleed for sin, and do you laugh at it?” (pg. 76)

“How good is God, that will not let me alone in my sins, but smites my body to save my soul!” (pg. 83)

“God would have us part with nothing for Him, but that which will damn us if we keep it. He has no design upon us, but to make us happy.” (pg. 110)

“Good works, though they are not causes of salvation, yet they are evidences.” (pg. 123)
