Romans 8:28-30 Worldwide English (New Testament) (WE)
28 We know that God works out everything for the good of those who love him. They are the people who are part of his plan.
29 He knew all along that he would choose them. He chose them to be made like his Son. Then his Son would be the first one of many brothers.
30 He chose them and he also called them. He called them to himself as if they had never been bad people. He made them right with himself and he also made them great in heaven.
