Groaning within ourselves

After noting that creation groans for its release from the bondage of corruption to which man’s sin has subjected it, Paul then said of us, 

“Not only that, but we also who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, eagerly waiting for the adoption, the redemption of our body” (Romans 8:23). 

We make the most of our time on earth, but we also know that something far better is coming, and for that we eagerly wait. 

Dream of heaven often. Dream of the change our bodies shall experience. Live life with what Paul said in mind.
