Romans 8:18-30 – From Groans to Glory (mp3)


Last week, Paul briefly mentioned suffering. Such suffering, as we strive for holiness in the world, will be inevitable. What could possibly make such suffering worth persevering through? What assurance did those who gave their lives for the faith have that such acts were truly good for them? And do we have access to such assurances as well? Paul desires that God’s people be encouraged through their suffering to hold on to Christ, and he begins that good work today by reminding us of what we are striving toward: Glory.

1. The condition of our inheritance

     a. Creation will be fixed

   b. Our bodies will be fixed

2. The certainty of our inheritance

   a. The work of the Spirit

   b. The plan of the Father
