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.

    1-4 "that the requirement of the law should be fulfilled in us, who walk not according to flesh, but according to Spirit." Demonstrating by the Spirit; the signs which Jesus did in the sight of the children of Israel, were for bringing them to the knowledge of the truth, and fulfilling God's promise of salvation. So too in us, by His Spirit; that God's goodness should praise Him in our new life.

    Paul tells us that speaking in another language is good if it is used to communicate the Good News. He says it is better to speak in the language that edifies, builds up the body of Christ. If one comes and all are speaking differently, they'll say you are mad, crazy.
