Triumph Over Tribulations

Jay Strother · Romans 8:16-25

Paul instructs us to “consider the suffering of this present time.”  What pressures and challenges are you dealing with right now?  Why is it important to not minimize or ignore our situation?

“Eagerly awaits” means “stretching the neck” or “standing on tiptoe” in anticipation.  What are you eagerly awaiting God to reveal to you right now?  How does this apply to our whole world?

How does the metaphor of “labor pain” help us understand life as we know it as believers in this fallen world?

Paul compares our current struggles to our future glory.  Why is it important to have eternal perspective when dealing with current issues?
