For K

Thinking of you and praying for you today.

We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time. Not only so, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for our adoption to sonship, the redemption of our bodies. For in this hope we were saved. […]  In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans. And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God’s people in accordance with the will of God (Romans 8:22-27).

  1. Romans 8! A very precious book to me – for so many reasons.

    • We spent a lot of time on it in confirmation; even if I don’t embrace it fully anymore, I can now see and appreciate the traces of Paul’s Judaism in it, so it’s stayed with me over the years.
