This morning the Lord blessed me with Romans 8:18-21:
"I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us. The creation waits in eager expectation for the sons of God to be revealed.... the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the glorious freedom of the children of God." (NIV)
Paul says something that is vital for us to believe, that the weight of our present sufferings is nothing compared to the weight of the glory that will be revealed in us! Just as creation will be liberated from the curse upon it, so we, as adopted sons of God, have been liberated from the curse contained in the Law, a curse upon anyone who does not do everything written in the Law. Yet it is not obvious to the world that we are the adopted sons of God. However, there is a coming a glorious time when it will be revealed, a time when we will be finally and completely transformed into the image of Christ, both spiritually and bodily! We will be transformed into an existence perfectly suited for face-to-face enjoyment of God Himself! Pray that God opens your eyes to understand more of the great weight of this future glory, and how the weight of our present sufferings is nothing in comparison.
