Overview

If the whole Scripture be the feast of the soul, as Ambrose said, then Romans 8 may be a dish at that feast, and with its sweet variety may very much refresh and animate the hearts of Gods people. In the preceding verses the apostle had been wading through the great doctrines of justification and adoption, mysteries so arduous and profound, that without the help and conduct of the Spirit, he might soon have waded beyond his depth. In this verse the apostle touches upon that pleasant string of consolation, ‘WE KNOW THAT ALL THINGS WORK TOGETHER FOR GOOD TO THEM THAT LOVE GOD.’ Not a word but is weighty; therefore I shall gather up every filing of this gold, that nothing be lost.
In the text there are three general branches:
First, a glorious privilege. All things work for good.
Second, the persons interested in this privilege. They are doubly specified. They are lovers of God, they are called.
Third, the origin and spring of this effectual calling, set down in these words, ‘according to his purpose.’
First, the glorious privilege. Here are two things to be considered. 1. The certainty of the privilege - ‘We know.’ 2. The excellency of the privilege - ‘All things work together for good.’

This is an absolutely wonderful book. Thomas Watson is my all-time favorite Puritan writer. He is so readable and his words are so relevant. I am reading this through for the second time, and plan to buy an extra copy to have on hand to give to a friend. Watson's words both comfort and convict the Christian, always encouraging us to walk more closely with Jesus, and offering practical words of wisdom. It's hard to believe the book was written so long ago. Highly recommended.
