“….even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting eagerly for our adoption as sons, the redemption of our body.
For in hope we have been saved, but hope that is seen is not hope; for who hopes for what he already sees?
But if we hope for what we do not see, with perseverance we wait eagerly for it.”
Hope… It’s hard to grasp sometimes. That we are saved, but still living in bodies of death.
Bodies that keep decaying. Bodies that do the very thing I do not want to do.
Instant gratification is my flesh desire. I think that’s part of the war. My body is repeating the lie of sin that if I can’t see it now, it isn’t going to happen.
I must listen to the Spirit of God, speaking to my spirit, reminding me of the big plan – redemption of creation, of my body, and a future as heirs with Christ!
