LIVING IN HOPE

Romans 8:17-30

Introduction: While the Bible teaches us to expect suffering in this life we need hope in order to live through it. Today the Apostle Paul teaches us to remember three spiritual truths to sustain our hope.

  • I.WE SHARE IN THE SUFFERING OF CHRIST (v. 17)
  • A.Jesus Experienced Every Suffering We Do
  • B.Jesus Overcame Every Suffering in Life
  • II.OUR PRESENT SUFFERING AND FUTURE GLORY (vv. 18 – 27)
  • A.Compare Our Suffering With Our Future Glory (V. 18)
  • 1.Glory revealed “in us
  • 2.Glory outweighs our suffering
  • B.Groaning and Glory (vv. 19 – 27)
  • Groans of creation
  • Groans of the human heart
  • Groans of the Holy Spirit
  • III.GOD WORKS ALL THING FOR THE GOOD (vv. 28 – 30)
  • A.God Transforms the Worst into a Good (v. 28)
  • in all things”
  • “God works”
  • “for the good”
  • “of those who love him and are called according to his purpose…”
  • “we know…”
  • B.Suffering Can Make Us More Life Jesus (v. 29)
  • C.The “Golden Chain of Redemption” (vv. 29 – 30)
