What Does God Say to Sufferers?

What Does God Say to Sufferers?

Over the last two weeks in Romans 8, we’ve learned that God says to us sufferers, “your present suffering is nothing compared to the glory that I’m going to reveal to you and, while you wait for glory, I’m working in all of the waiting for your ultimate good.” But in today’s passage, the Apostle Paul flips the question from “what does God say?” to “what do you say?”

This morning’s passage shows us that we can say “God is for you.”  We know this because the passage explains that God gave his son for you, God justifies you, and nothing will separate you from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

What does God say to sufferers? He doesn’t avoid suffering; He speaks right into it, but with hope: Your present sufferings are nothing compared to your future glory.
