You Have Hope in Suffering, Part 2 of 3 (Children of an Awesome God)

January 12, 2017

As believers, we long to be free of the limitations and pains of this body. Suffering is a lot easier to bear when we have hope for a future day when all suffering will cease. That’s the hope Paul speaks of in the marvelous eighth chapter of Romans.

It’s tough to be optimistic when slogging through hard times. Some try to grin and bear it; others crack under the pressure. But Christians can have a different perspective: awaiting a future glory that makes our present suffering infinitesimal in comparison.

“The Spirit bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then… joint heirs with Christ.” Romans 8 gives believers the riches of heaven despite being unworthy sinners. God invites us into the throne room to partake of His bounty.

Think life’s tough for you? Just wait. Think you’ve always gotten the short end of life’s stick? Just wait. As a member of the body of Christ, your inheritance is earning interest right now in the bank of heaven. One day:  you’ll make a withdrawal.

From Romans 8 we learn that the Holy Spirit bestows Christians with the desire for intimacy with God. In fact, even the desire to call Him “daddy.” Can you call God “Papa”?

An heir—that’s exactly what you are as a child of God. You’re an heir to a fortune, and didn’t know it. In Romans, we read: “we are children of God, and if children, then heirs, joint heirs with Christ.”

Many people try to satisfy themselves with things that only make finding satisfaction more elusive. But the believer in Christ has a new life with new desires. Here are more reasons why Christians are indeed “Children of an Awesome God.”

As believers in Christ, we have a future beyond the reach of the bill collector, beyond the reach of our failures and sins, a future safe in the hands of God. He guarantees that for believers, there is no condemnation in the life to come.

Where is your security found?  If you know Christ, your bank deposits are safe, really safe, where “moth and rust cannot corrupt.”  That bank is not of this world, and, as a child of God, neither are you.  Here is a Bible passage listing more blessings than we can ever count.

The challenge for the New Year is “get involved.” That’s what Esther did at a crucial point in the history of the Jewish people. She got involved at great personal risk, as must we to face the daunting challenges that lie ahead.

To save her people from extinction, Esther faced the risk of execution to beg the king of Persia to rescind a royal edict. She didn’t try to “pass the buck.” She knew that at that key moment, “the buck stopped here.”
