Romans 8:12-25

CEB 12 So then, brothers and sisters, we have an obligation, but it isn't an obligation to ourselves to live our lives on the basis of selfishness. NRS 12 So then, brothers and sisters, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh— CEB 13 If you live on the basis of selfishness, you are going to die. But if by the Spirit you put to death the actions of the body, you will live. NRS 13 for if you live according to the flesh, you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live. CEB 14 All who are led by God's Spirit are God's sons and daughters. NRS 14 For all who are led by the Spirit of God are children of God. CEB 15 You didn't receive a spirit of slavery to lead you back again into fear, but you received a Spirit that shows you are adopted as his children. With this Spirit, we cry, "Abba, Father." NRS 15 For you did not receive a spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received a spirit of adoption. When we cry, "Abba! Father!" CEB 16 The same Spirit agrees with our spirit, that we are God's children. NRS 16 it is that very Spirit bearing witness with our spirit that we are children of God, CEB 17 But if we are children, we are also heirs. We are God's heirs and fellow heirs with Christ, if we really suffer with him so that we can also be glorified with him. NRS 17 and if children, then heirs, heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ—if, in fact, we suffer with him so that we may also be glorified with him. CEB 18 I believe that the present suffering is nothing compared to the coming glory that is going to be revealed to us. NRS 18 I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory about to be revealed to us. CEB 19 The whole creation waits breathless with anticipation for the revelation of God's sons and daughters. NRS 19 For the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the children of God; CEB 20 Creation was subjected to frustration, not by its own choice—it was the choice of the one who subjected it—but in the hope NRS 20 for the creation was subjected to futility, not of its own will but by the will of the one who subjected it, in hope CEB 21 that the creation itself will be set free from slavery to decay and brought into the glorious freedom of God's children. NRS 21 that the creation itself will be set free from its bondage to decay and will obtain the freedom of the glory of the children of God. CEB 22 We know that the whole creation is groaning together and suffering labor pains up until now. NRS 22 We know that the whole creation has been groaning in labor pains until now; CEB 23 And it's not only the creation. We ourselves who have the Spirit as the first crop of the harvest also groan inside as we wait to be adopted and for our bodies to be set free. NRS 23 and not only the creation, but we ourselves, who have the first fruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly while we wait for adoption, the redemption of our bodies. CEB 24 We were saved in hope. If we see what we hope for, that isn't hope. Who hopes for what they already see? NRS 24 For in hope we were saved. Now hope that is seen is not hope. For who hopes for what is seen? CEB 25 But if we hope for what we don't see, we wait for it with patience. NRS 25 But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it with patience.
