    Relax....and Rejoice! What you see now will one day end because the THE GOOD TIMES ARE STILL TO COME...and when they are released upon us and all creation, it will be "Glory!"

    Romans 8:15-18 - The Message (MSG)

    This resurrection life you received from God is not a timid, grave-tending life. It's adventurously expectant, greeting God with a childlike "What's next, Papa?" God's Spirit touches our spirits and confirms who we really are. We know who he is, and we know who we are: Father and children. And we know we are going to get what's coming to us—an unbelievable inheritance! We go through exactly what Christ goes through. If we go through the hard times with him, then we're certainly going to go through the good times with him!

    That's why I don't think there's any comparison between the present hard times and the coming good times. The created world itself can hardly wait for what's coming next. Everything in creation is being more or less held back. God reins it in until both creation and all the creatures are ready and can be released at the same moment into the glorious times ahead. Meanwhile, the joyful anticipation deepens.


    As His children, we must stick to the narrow path, no matter how difficult it becomes, because when He reveals our rewards and heaven is opened; it will be one glorious day for all His creation. Oh that will be glory! :applause:
