Memorization Monday - Romans 8:30

Romans 8:30 Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified.

To get the context you have to go back at least to verse 28 and read through verse 30. The thing to notice here is the tense of the verbs. They are all in past tense and so for God, all of these are as good as done. Even though we have not reached the glorified state as yet, in God's eyes it's complete.

The other thing to notice here is the inclusiveness of the language. In other words, all those He called He has justified, etc. It's worth taking some time to meditate on the greatness of the salvation we've been given.
