And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. Romans 8:28

This is another of the recommended memory verses for each of us. It is something we can cling to and be both upheld by and inspired by all the days of our walk with Christ.… Read the rest

Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God. Romans 8:27

Who is it that searches the hearts and mind? In Jeremiah 17:10, we see it is the Lord, Jehovah –

I, the Lord, search the heart, I test the mind, Even to give every man according to his ways, According to the fruit of his doings.… Read the rest

Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.  Romans 8:26

But if we hope for what we do not see, we eagerly wait for it with perseverance. Romans 8:25

“But” marks the contrast with the preceding verse: “For we were saved in this hope, but hope that is seen is not hope; for why does one still hope for what he sees?”

Instead of sight, which is the realization of our hope, we (even now 2000 years after Paul’s letter) “hope for what we do not see.” The Bible, from Genesis to Revelation, is a book of hope and promise for those who wait patiently on their God to fulfill His word and execute His plan.… Read the rest

For we were saved in this hope, but hope that is seen is not hope; for why does one still hope for what he sees? Romans 8:24

This is the final “for” of this subsection. Notice the logical progression of Paul’s thoughts as they come from the tip of his pen –

We are children of God, heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if we indeed suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together.… Read the rest
