What Do You Consider Worthwhile?
Scripture Reference: Romans 8: 18-39
In Romans 8:18, Paul writes that “our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us“.
So what do you consider worthwhile? A new purchase, an expensive vacation? Perhaps, but suffering or a difficult experience? When we consider Paul’s experiences the word worthwhile is challenged. This week we try to bolster our hope and faith , but looking a what God has in store.
Therefore! One Should Always Know What Therefores Are There For!
“Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.” ~Romans 8:1
I was taught in seminary, in a class called Hermeneutics, to always know what your ‘therefores’ are there for. I’ve seen this saying, with variations, in several books since. Romans 8:1 is a classic case of this. Romans 8:1 is the conclusion of the previous 7 chapters. This single verse is monumental in any Christian’s life, if we could only fully grasp it. What does life look like without condemnation? We’ll explore that in this message.

We can’t seem to get unstuck from sin. Like Paul in Romans 7 we all know this experience as Christians. How do we get unstuck?
