637. The creation waits for us to be made visible as we are
The creation waits for us to be made visible as we are – Romans 8:18-22, Romans 8:28
18 For I reckon that the sufferings (evil suffered) of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed (exposed or open to view) in us.
19 For the earnest expectation (anxious looking with outstretched hand) of the creature (creation) waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God.
20 For the creature (creation) was made subject (to submit) to vanity (disappointing misery), not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected (submitted) the same in hope (the expectation of future good),
21 Because the creature (creation) itself also shall be delivered (set free) from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty (freedom of glory) of the children of God.
22 For we know that the whole creation groaneth (groan or sigh as in distress) and travaileth (in the throes of birth) in pain together until now.
28 And we know that all things work (labor, achieves, that which is accomplished by labors) together for good (with motion to worthy of admiration) to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose (of what one’s sets before his mind, deliberate resolution).
