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.

Discussion for Romans 8:18

  • I feel blessed to have read the scripture...I thank Almighty for his guidance coz presently am in a hurting situation but having to know that whatever I am going through now will never be compared to the glory that will be revealed to me I feel like holding on to the hand of God for he will never fail us
  • MockingBird for verse 18
    I believe the suffering God is saying here means the sufferings according to the will of God. When we are going through a thing or doing in the will of God and are suffering for it. Persecuted for it : then we have an expectation of the Glory of God to be revealed in us. Suffering is never pleasant !!! I would much rather be pleasing to the Lord God than to pleas man eternal reward there !!!! We have to work to keep ourselves. Praise God !!!!

    Watever trials n tribulations we r going thru now as long as we dont let go off the hands of God it cant be compared to the blessings that He has in store for us. He also said in His word that when He approves of ur life even ur enemies will end up shaking ur hands. DONT GIVE UP!!
  • Today we as children of God complain. And we dont think about the glory the Lord has place in us.
