I. Witness to an Unseen Reality (vv.14-17)
Heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ
“This mystery is that the Gentiles are fellow heirs, members of the same body, and partakers of the promise in Christ Jesus through the gospel.” (Ephesians 3:6)
II. Help in Suffering (vv.18-30)
Intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words
“But we see him who for a little while was made lower than the angels, namely Jesus, crowned with glory and honor because of the suffering of death, so that by the grace of God he might taste death for everyone.” (Hebrews 2:9)
III. Guarantee of Glory (vv. 31-39)
Who will separate us from the love of Christ?
“For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison” (2 Corinthians 4:17)
• How do we know we are children of God and fellow-heirs with Christ?
• Why is “suffering to glory” a good summary of the Christian?
• How does the Spirit help in our weakness?
• How can we be ‘more than conquerors’ and yet experience hard things?
