People's Bible Notes for Romans 8:18


Ro 8:18 The sufferings of this present time. The Christian of our time has little conception of the sufferings of the ancient saints, counted as outcasts, despised, persecuted, slain. See Ro 8:36 2Co 11:23-28. Yet Paul counted these as nothing in view of the hope of eternal glory. The glory which shall be revealed in us. In the saints when they shall have received the inheritance which God bestows in Christ. The comforts of the saint in the midst of suffering are now given: (1) The hope of glory for which all creation, ruined by the Fall, is looking. (2) The present help of the Spirit. (3) The overruling providence of God.

    The spirit knows what we need therefore he searches our heart. Intercession is made on our behalf daily. When we become determined in our walk to let nothing separate us from the love of God we can be assured the enemy will come against us. But as Paul writes no matter what I should not allow anything pull me away from God.
