CREATION WAITS WITH EAGER LONGING FOR THE REVEALING OF THE SONS OF GOD
If all we did was go to church 2 for two hours a week we would have about 1.1% of our time devoted to God. This is not enough time. Would you be happy with your spouse if they devoted 98.9% of their time to other things? Perhaps you are unhappy with your spouse but chances are you spend more than 2 hours a week with them. The reason we bring this us is there are things you MUST know from the word of God to make it in a fallen world. Do you expect to learn these things from osmosis???
Paul mentions suffering in verse 17 and again in verse 18, what type of suffering is he talking about? Is it all suffering or suffering for Christ only? Why should a Christian endure suffering? Why do some people give up before the end and not endure the suffering of this world? How important is it to be in God’s Word?
Rom 8:20 ESV For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of him who subjected it, in hope
We raise several questions during this sermon and answer them all from God’s Word being guided by the Holy Spirit.
