A. Heirs of Glory
14 For as many as are 1led by the 2Spirit of God, these are 3asons of God.
15 For you have not received a spirit of slavery bringing you into fear again, but you have received a 1aspirit of sonship in which we bcry, 2Abba, Father!
16 The Spirit Himself awitnesses 1with 2our bspirit that 3we are cchildren of God.
17 And if children, aheirs also; on the one hand, heirs of God; on the other, joint heirs with Christ, 1if indeed we bsuffer with Him that we may also be cglorified with Him.
18 For I 1consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the coming aglory to be revealed 2upon us.
19 For the 1anxious watching of the creation eagerly awaits the 2revelation of the sons of God.
20 For the creation was made subject to avanity, not of its own will, but because of Him who subjected it,
21 In hope that the creation itself will also be 1freed from the slavery of corruption into the freedom of the aglory of the children of God.
22 For we know that the whole creation groans together and travails in pain together until now.
23 And not only so, but we ourselves also, who have 1the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves 2groan in ourselves, eagerly awaiting 3asonship, the bredemption of our body.
24 For we were saved in hope. But a ahope that is seen is not hope, for who hopes for what he sees?
25 But if we hope for what we do not see, we eagerly await it through endurance.
26 Moreover, 1in like manner the Spirit also joins in to help us in our 2weakness, for we do not know for what we should pray as is fitting, but the Spirit Himself aintercedes for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.
27 But He who searches the hearts knows what the 1mind of the Spirit is, because He intercedes for the saints 2according to God.
B. Heirs Conformed
28 And we know that 1all things 2work together for 3good to those who 4love God, to those who are acalled according to His 5purpose.
29 Because those whom He 1foreknew, He also 2apredestinated to be 3conformed to the bimage of His Son, that He might be the 4cFirstborn among 5many dbrothers;
30 And those whom He predestinated, these He also called; and those whom He called, these He also 1ajustified; and those whom He justified, these He also 2bglorified.
C. Heirs Inseparable from God's Love
31 What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?
32 Indeed, He who did not spare His own Son, but adelivered Him up for us all, how shall He not also with Him freely give us ball things?
33 Who shall bring a acharge against God's chosen ones? 1It is God who bjustifies.
34 Who is he who condemns? 1It is Christ Jesus who adied and, rather, who bwas raised, who is also 2cat the right hand of God, who also 3dintercedes for us.
35 Who shall separate us from the alove of Christ? Shall tribulation or anguish or persecution or famine or nakedness or peril or sword?
36 As it is written, a"For Your sake we are being bput to death all day long; we have been accounted as sheep for slaughter.''
37 But in all these things we 1more than conquer through Him who loved us.
38 For I am persuaded that neither death nor life nor angels nor principalities nor things present nor things to come nor powers
39 Nor height nor depth nor any other creature will be able to separate us from the 1alove of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
