Bible: Rom 8:18-23

8:18 For I consider that our present sufferings cannot even be compared 1  to the glory that will be revealed to us. 8:19 For the creation eagerly waits for the revelation of the sons of God. 8:20 For the creation was subjected to futility – not willingly but because of God 2  who subjected it – in hope 8:21 that the creation itself will also be set free from the bondage of decay into the glorious freedom of God’s children. 8:22 For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers together until now. 8:23 Not only this, but we ourselves also, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, 3  groan inwardly as we eagerly await our adoption, 4  the redemption of our bodies. 5
