Some call them delusional. They gaze in wonder at believers who accept even tragedy as part of a greater good. Only a Christian can be certain that all of life is heading toward a future glory. That's why a believer can know that all things, even the bad things, work together for good for those who love God. For a challenging message on a famous Bible verse, please stay with us.

When the economy worsens, many find themselves suffering for the first time. No job, foreclosure, fear for the future. Christians get socked by life's reversals like anyone else. But there is a crucial difference. The believer knows he or she has a permanent home where no foreclosure is possible and where all suffering will end. Today: why we never groan alone when experiencing trials.

Someone once said, "Once you're 60, if it doesn't hurt, it doesn't work." Well, as we believers age, we long for heaven. We long to be free of the limitations of this body, and from the pain we often endure. 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.

The rain falls on the just and the unjust, as humans, none of us escapes times of pain, sorrow, or deprivation. It's tough to be optimistic when slogging through life's tough times. Some people try to grin and bear it; others crack under the pressure. Christians can have a different perspective: looking toward 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 heirs. joint heirs with Christ." That's the teaching of Romans chapter 8, a promise for believers of being given the riches of heaven despite being unworthy sinners. Just like a father gives gifts to his kids, God invites His children into the throne room to partake of His bounty.

The Bible says, "Eye hath not seen the things God has prepared for those that love Him." Believer: just wait. Think life's tough for you? Just wait. Think people treat you poorly? 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 will make a withdrawal.

When a child is fearful, his first instinct is to run into the arms of his parents. There's safety and comfort in the family. Christians are born into God's family, and they don't find God unapproachable at all. From Romans 8 we learn that the Holy Spirit births in them the desire for intimacy with God, in fact, even the desire to call Him "daddy." Can you call God "Papa?" If not, stay tuned.

How would you feel if you got a letter saying that an unknown benefactor had died, leaving you ten million dollars? You check, and find you're an heir to a fortune, and didn't know it. An heir is exactly what you are as a child of God. In the book of Romans, we read that "The Spirit bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs, joint heirs with Christ."

Most people are stuck in a rut, trying to satisfy themselves with things that only make finding satisfaction more elusive. But the believer in Christ has a whole new life, a life with new desires: desires that God satisfies deeply as we walk in His light. Today: more reasons why Christians are indeed "Children of an Awesome God."

There aren't many things anyone can be sure of anymore. But despite the economy, we can be certain of one thing. If we are 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 the God who guarantees that for us as believers, there is no condemnation ahead in the life to come.

The economy might soon tank, stocks might plummet, foreclosures might rise. So where is your security found? If you know Christ as savior, your bank deposits are safe, perfectly safe, where "moth and rust cannot corrupt." That bank is not of this world, and, as a child of God, neither are you. Today we look into a Bible chapter listing more blessings than we can ever fathom.
