Do you suffer and groan? If you’re a human I’d guess yes. If you take a look at the rest of the world and cosmos, then you’ll see more groaning from suffering. And does being a believer in Jesus, a Christian, does that lessen the suffering? Sometimes we are surprised to find out from the Bible and by our experience that the opposite is true – Christians will suffer all the more just like our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ suffered.
Then what is this all for? Is it meaningless?
This coming Sunday (and Father’s Day!) we’re in the second half of Romans 8, as we uncover a glorious future that’s not even worth comparing to our present sufferings. Come and see, for your joy.
