1. God Promises that after This Time of Suffering We Will See an All-satisfying Beauty and Greatness

Verse 18: “For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us.” “Glory” I take to mean “overwhelming, all-satisfying beauty and greatness.” “Be revealed to us” I take to mean, “we will see it.” There is much more to our hope. But let’s just take this part and let it sink in.

The psalmist says that the heavens declare the glory not of themselves but the glory of God. As majestic as the vast universe is, it is only trying to tell a story – a faint story of the immeasurable glory that God has.

In this sermon too is my favorite quote that even death throws are birth pangs for followers of Christ!
