The Groans of Romans 8

You may wish to look away now if you are planning to come to the Marquee service on Rushlake Green at 11am on Sunday 31st July. Of course there's a long time to go and the sermon may well gestate further, but it might go something like this:

Romans 8vv18-27 – Groaning for Glory

(1) Creation groans (v22)

(2) We Christians groan (v23)

(3) The Holy Spirit groans on our behalf (v26)

è Don’t worry: groaning is normal!

è Don’t settle or despair: groan in this confident and great hope!

è You don’t groan alone: look to the Spirit’s help!
