A Universe in Labor

Romans 8:18-25
Our good Father has a plan to put this entire universe at risk. He has immersed us all in a process of corruption and decay in the hope that it will give birth to a new order of freedom and glory breaking us free from the slavery of sin and death. But keep in mind childbirth is never easy. There is groaning and pain and suffering involved. And since the infusion of God's Spirit in us has started to bear fruit in us we groan in anticipation too. But there is also the joy of hope that it will all soon be over. So use this time of hoping to learn perseverance.
