Suffering on the Road to Glory
by Ted Schroder
As we honor, on this Memorial weekend, those who have suffered and died on our behalf, we remember that the inheritance of Christ includes, not only glory, but also suffering: “we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory.” (Romans 8:17) Before we enter into our inheritance we have to pass through <more...>

The God of Hope
by Ted Schroder
The first Sunday after Pentecost in the Christian calendar is called Trinity Sunday, in which we are to remember the character of God as revealed by Jesus Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit. How we view and experience the character of God determines our own spiritual health. All too often we craft God in our own image – of what we want God to be for us. Or we reject the image of God <more...>

The Hope of Glory
by Ted Schroder
“Glory” is a biblical word. It describes a state, a condition of life that reflects the presence of a pure and holy God. In Isaiah’s vision in the temple, when he saw the Lord seated on a throne, he heard the angels calling to one another: “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord Almighty; the whole earth is full of his glory.” (Isaiah 6:3) This is the indescribable splendor of God, beautiful, overflowing with goodness, power, and purity. <more...>

The Revelation of Glory
by Ted Schroder
“I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us. The creation waits in eager expectation for the sons of God to be revealed.” (Romans 8:18,19)

The Liberation of Creation
by Ted Schroder
Some of the most fundamental questions of human existence are “How do we make sense of the world around us? What is going on in the universe?” The teaching of the Bible and the perspective of Christian faith provides a map of reality that enables us to discover clues to the meaning of the universe. Alister McGrath comments on the words of C.S. Lewis: ‘I believe in Christianity as I believe the Sun has risen, not only because I see it, but because by it I see <more...>

Waiting Eagerly and Patiently
by Ted Schroder
“We ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for our adoption as sons, the redemption of our bodies. For in this hope we were saved. But hope that is seen is no hope at all. Who hopes for what he already has? But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently.” (Romans 8:23-25) <more...>

Prayer in the Spirit
by Ted Schroder
“The Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express. And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints in accordance with God’s will.” (Romans 8:26,27 NIV)
<more...>

For Our Good?
by Ted Schroder 
“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” (Romans 8:28) How can God work for the good of those who love him in the midst of tragedy? How can trials be occasions of joyfulness? How can the testing of our faith produce endurance so that we may be mature and complete, lacking in nothing? (James 1:2-4)
<more...>

Called and Chosen
by Ted Schroder
“For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the likeness of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers. And those he predestined, he also called; those he called, he also justified; those he justified, he also glorified.” (Romans 8:29,30 NIV) <more...>

God is For Us
by Ted Schroder
“What, then, shall we say in response to this?” (Romans 8:31) St. Paul has been arguing that “in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” (Romans 8:28) God has a purpose to fulfill in and through us. We are called and chosen to do God’s will. When our bodies are redeemed God will bring us to his glorious presence in his heavenly kingdom. That is our hope, for which we wait patiently in this life, despite our weakness. For our present <more...>
