DEVOTIONAL DAY #15 YOUR FUTURE GLORY TRUMPS YOUR PRESENT SUFFERING


Romans 8 17

Scripture Reading: Romans 8:17-18 (NIV)
Key Verse: Romans 8:18(NIV)

17 Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory. 18 I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.

Do you remember what it felt like that day when someone in your family that wasn’t you received some exciting news? It could have been something like your father or mother getting a promotion at work which increased the income in your home. See the cool thing was even though it wasn’t you getting the promotion it affected you in a positive way because you were in some way connected to the person who did. What was even more exciting was the fact that your family could save enough money to go on vacation or your parents could finally get you the gift you always wanted.

What about that day when your father or mother received the bad news that they were going to be laid off from work or received the news that they are suffering from a terminal illness? Even though it wasn’t you because you were connected you felt the hurt, pain, sadness and fear of the unknown right along with them right?

So why do we suffer in this life as believers in Christ? Because like verse 17 says if we are children of Christ then we share in his sufferings but the good news is that because we are his children we also share in his glory.

Key Verse: Romans 8:18(NIV)
18 I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.

Lord, I pray that when I go through a tough season in my life that I’ll always remember that my past, present and future suffering will never compare to my future glory in you.
