Romans 8:18-25

NLT 18 Yet what we suffer now is nothing compared to the glory he will reveal to us later. NIV 18 I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us. NLT 19 For all creation is waiting eagerly for that future day when God will reveal who his children really are. NIV 19 The creation waits in eager expectation for the sons of God to be revealed. NLT 20 Against its will, all creation was subjected to God’s curse. But with eager hope, NIV 20 For the creation was subjected to frustration, not by its own choice, but by the will of the one who subjected it, in hope NLT 21 the creation looks forward to the day when it will join God’s children in glorious freedom from death and decay. NIV 21 that the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the glorious freedom of the children of God. NLT 22 For we know that all creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time. NIV 22 We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time. NLT 23 And we believers also groan, even though we have the Holy Spirit within us as a foretaste of future glory, for we long for our bodies to be released from sin and suffering. We, too, wait with eager hope for the day when God will give us our full rights as his adopted children, including the new bodies he has promised us. NIV 23 Not only so, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for our adoption as sons, the redemption of our bodies. NLT 24 We were given this hope when we were saved. (If we already have something, we don’t need to hope for it. NIV 24 For in this hope we were saved. But hope that is seen is no hope at all. Who hopes for what he already has? NLT 25 But if we look forward to something we don’t yet have, we must wait patiently and confidently.) NIV 25 But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently.
