God Works for Good
Topic: Belief & Faith
We know that in everything God works for good with those who love Him, who are called according to His purpose. For those whom he foreknew he also predestined to be conformed in the image of his Son, in order that he might be the firstborn among many brethren. And those whom he predestined he also called; and those whom he called he also justified; and those whom he justified he also glorified.
Letter to the Romans

Some interpret this passage to allow room for human free will; since it may be that not all among ‘those whom he called’ will be justified, should they not believe; and not all among ‘those whom he justified’ will be glorified, should they not continue to live a sanctifying life.
