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 one thing that I know from my own experience with God is that He will always be there when I need Him. Other than turning your back on Him denouncing Him , there is no sin that He won't forgive you for, so in knowing that there should be NO ONE or NOTHING that will be able to seperate you from the Love of God.
