Romans 8:29: Chosen by God

What does Paul mean when he says that God foreknew some people?  Think intimate relationship.  To say that God foreknew some people means that he set his affection on them before they even existed, chose them to be his and destined them for a particular future.

God has meticulously worked out--in advance--every step of our salvation.  From beginning to end, God is guiding our journey to heaven.

This should comfort believers.  At least, that's why the Holy Spirit wrote it, to show us that no matter what we go through in this life, nothing can thwart God's plan to bring us into his family and carry us to eternity with him.

Sounds too good to be true!  Maybe that's why he had to write it.
