From Groaning to Glory… Guaranteed!

From Groaning to Glory... Guaranteed!

The Sermon: Romans 8: 18-25 [’84 NIV]

18 I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us. 19 The creation waits in eager expectation for the sons of God to be revealed. 20For the creation was subjected to frustration, not by its own choice, but by the will of the one who subjected it, in hope 21 that the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the glorious freedom of the children of God. 22 We know that the whole creation has been groaning 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, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for our adoption as sons, the redemption of our bodies. 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? 25 But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently.

1. Draw us to Thee,  For then shall we
Walk in Thy steps forever  And hasten on
Where Thou art gone  To be with Thee, dear Savior.

  1. Draw us to Thee That also we
    Thy heavenly bliss inherit And ever dwell
    Where sin and hell  No more can vex our spirit.
  2. Draw us to Thee Unceasingly,
    Into Thy kingdom take us; Let us fore’er
    Thy glory share,  Thy saints and joint heirs make us.
