Not only the world, but we also have been waiting with pain inside us. We have the Spirit as the first part of God's promise. So we are waiting for God to finish making us his own children, which means our bodies will be made free.
We were saved, and we have this hope. If we see what we are waiting for, that is not really hope. People do not hope for something they already have.
But we are hoping for something we do not have yet, and we are waiting for it patiently.
Also, the Spirit helps us with our weakness. We do not know how to pray as we should. But the Spirit himself speaks to God for us, even begs God for us with deep feelings that words cannot explain.
God can see what is in people's hearts. And he knows what is in the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit speaks to God for his people in the way God wants.
We know that in everything God works for the good of those who love him. They are the people he called, because that was his plan.
God knew them before he made the world, and he decided that they would be like his Son so that Jesus would be the firstbornn of many brothers.
God planned for them to be like his Son; and those he planned to be like his Son, he also called; and those he called, he also made right with him; and those he made right, he also glorified.
So what should we say about this? If God is with us, no one can defeat us.
He did not spare his own Son but gave him for us all. So with Jesus, God will surely give us all things.
Who can accuse the people God has chosen? No one, because God is the One who makes them right.
