Romans 8:18-21 [NLT]

Big Idea: For true believers, God promises that our temporary suffering will soon be replaced by an eternal joy.

18 Yet what we suffer now is nothing compared to the glory he will reveal to us later. 19 For all creation is waiting eagerly for that future day when God will reveal who his children really are. 20 Against its will, all creation was subjected to God’s curse. But with eager hope, 21 the creation looks forward to the day when it will join God’s children in glorious freedom from death and decay. ~Romans 8:18-21 NLT
