12/30/16 The Agony Of Labor Leads To The Joy Of New Life

“Why should we be so willing to suffer for Jesus?  Aside from knowing that He suffered and died for us, consider that even the worst suffering here in this world is nothing compared to the eternal joy that is awaiting us.  All of creation is eagerly anticipating that day when God’s children will be freed from this world of sorrow.  Creation has been laboring under the curse introduced to the world through the sin of Adam and Eve, but always secure in the hope of the deliverance to come in the day when God recreates everything the way it was meant to be.  All of creation is like a woman in labor, waiting in agony for the expected joy of birth.”

 

Romans 8:18-22
