“And not only creation, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for adoption as sons, the redemption of our bodies.” – Romans 8:23
Can I get an amen from everyone out there who is waiting to adopt their own child? Aren’t we “groaning inwardly”?!
Can I get another amen from everyone who is a Christian, yet still feel the effects of sin on their lives… sin, sickness, brokeness…
Oh how we groan for ALL of our adoptions, whether spiritual or physical!
