Romans 8:18, “For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared to the glory to be revealed to us”. We often fail to see the distance we fall away from God and then, fail to see the magnificence of that same God. Our sin pulls us from Him yet, His Grace pulls us to Him. Seeing or attempting in our faith to grasp the Glory that lies ahead can draw us to that Glory , beginning the process of leaving behind sin. Yes, never free of the bondage in this world but choosing to set aside sin in favor of Grace and glory. Then we read in verse 29, “For whom He foreknew He also foreordained conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the First born among many brethren”. We, He knew before time began, we were chosen to share in all eternity has to offer. A gift given, nothing held back, can we give to Him the same way??
