Future Glory

18 I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.1 19 The creation waits in eager expectation for the sons of God2 to be revealed. 20 For the creation was subjected to frustration, not by its own choice, but by the will of the one who subjected it,3 in hope 21 thata the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay4 and brought into the glorious freedom of the children of God.5 22 We know that the whole creation has been groaning6 as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time. 23 Not only so, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit,7 groan8 inwardly as we wait eagerly9 for our adoption as sons, the redemption of our bodies.10 24 For in this hope we were saved.11 But hope that is seen is no hope at all.12 Who hopes for what he already has? 25 But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently.13
