TEXT: Romans 8:26-28 Romans 8:28 is a very popular verse of Scripture. It is a "feel good" verse. However, it is one that is most often quoted out of context. The preposition "and" at the beginning of this verse tells us that it does not stand alone. It comes in addition to what Paul has been talking about before, and that is how the Holy Spirit helps believers in prayer. It is only in that context that we can fully understand the meaning of the following words: "And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose."
