Romans 8:12-25
Labor Pains

Life is difficult and sometimes very painful. Paul writes to Christians in the midst of their experience of pain, telling them that better things are coming. Christ came to redeem the world and to heal our brokenness. God promises that which is coming is much better than what we can see now. God promises us new life and gives us hope for the days ahead, while encouraging us to join God's work in the world.
