Do you ever groan over the difficulties in life? No question, life can be painful. But what if our suffering here is not worth comparing to the glory that will be revealed in us in eternity? Wouldn’t that be great? Paul says it is true. This is a bold statement, so how does Paul back it up? He shows us that all of creation is groaning as we groan in anticipation of redemption and liberation. Best of all, God groans with us. We serve the suffering God. Just as Jesus’ suffering resulted in a glorious resurrection, so will ours. Believe it!
