A world awash with sin and pain
– are there any advantages to being a Christian?
1. We have the ‘first fruits’ of the Holy Spirit (Romans 8:23)
– what we have now
– what we don’t have yet
we ‘groan’ now
– confident hope
– some peddle false hope
2. The Spirit ‘Groans’ with us (Romans 8:26)
Where is God when we are hurting?
The Bible is such an honest book
– We are never alone
