joyful anticipation

The Chase (tryptich)

The Chase (tryptich)

What makes you joyful?
Do you wait with anticipation?

As our small group studies Romans 8 and we read in different versions. And thankfully, we have great discussions!

NIV – eager expectation
MSG – joyful anticipation
AMP – waits expectantly and longs earnestly

I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us. For the creation waits in eager expectation for the children of God to be revealed.
Romans 8:18 NIV

How will someone know we are a child of God?
Does our life look differently?
Are our actions, convictions and attitudes reflecting Jesus or the same as the modern world?

We believe. We are saved. We can rest assured of our life in eternity but it seems so often we act like everyone else.

I know many think my life is “different” and yet does that different really glorify Jesus?
