  • Thoughts from the pulpit

    By  Pastor Charles  Areson

    Tell City First Church of the Nazarene


    In Romans 8:28, Paul says God will cause all things to work together for good, for those who love him and are called by him. Notice Paul did not say everything was good. It isn’t. Some things in life are terrible, or to use a highly spiritual term, “they stink.” OK, maybe it isn’t a spiritual term, but it’s true. The key in this scripture is that God works all of our life, the good, the bad, and even the boring together for good.
