If a man loves God and is called according to His purpose, then that man can know for a certainty that all things will work together for good.
A man who truly believes he loves God and is called by God should have a rock solid assurance in all he does. Fear of all things temporal should be eliminated. Confidence will override the system.
If this were true, this man’s life would be marked by risk-taking, abundant giving, and boundary pushing efforts.
The immediate response to this logic is that it’s testing God or arrogant, short-sighted and dangerous. If a normal guy does this, I would agree. But a man who loves God and is called according to His purpose?
I don’t think these concerns are the issue!
If you know for sure that you love God and you are called according to His purposes you will undertake a life of radical faith, obedience, service, ministry, and giving. A life that few live, for few have confidence in the One who calls.
Don’t apply this verse only to people who get cancer. Apply this verse in all areas of life. It’s high time to wake up, live in the day, in the Light of Him who has called you. This will result in a particular way of life not many have seen, let alone lived.
“But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light”
