"The first fruits of the Spirit..."
Text: Romans 8:23
DEEPENING OF UNDERSTANDING
The apostle Paul must have been aware of the fact that not many believed and felt as he did! However, he knew that the knowledge he had acquired was from the Lord and it was important for believers to acquire that same deep understanding of the Christian Hope. To this end he wrote an insightful word in the following text.
“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.”
