Purpose of Salvation
A Sermon on Romans 8:17-18
and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, provided we suffer with him in order that we may also be glorified with him.
For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us. (ESV)
Glorification the ultimate end of salvation; complete restoration in Christ; our position as children of God; present suffering in the light of future glory.
