Just for Laughs – A tourist in South America was visiting a tribe deep in the jungle. He noticed that most of the tribe wore necklaces made of alligator teeth and seemed very proud of them.

“I suppose those alligator teeth are as valuable to you as pearls are to us,” he commented.

“Much more,” said the tribe’s elder.

“Oh really? How is that?”

“Anybody can open an oyster.”

Present Suffering, Future Glory (Rom 8:18-27)

By: Curtis Baker

Before I left for vacation, our study in the book of Romans had brought us to the eighth chapter of this grand letter. It would not be an exaggeration to say that chapter eight is the climax of the book of Romans. Here, in this section of the letter, Paul takes us to heights that are rarely experienced in scripture. Paul lays out for us the beautiful way in which God’s story comes to itCurtis Bakers climax in the work of Jesus Christ. That work begins now in the freedom it has provided us from the penalty of our sin–death and condemnation. But freedom is not the final word in chapter eight. Indeed, it is merely the necessary prerequisite which makes what comes next possible. In the latter half of Romans eight, Paul looks to the future to see the “glory” that is awaiting to be revealed “for us” (Rom 8:18).
