  1. 1. MOTIVATION
  2. 2. Romans 8:18-21 For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. 19 For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God. 20 For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it in hope; 21 because the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.
  3. 3. MOTIVATION A.From time to time we all need motivation. B.Motivation is that drive that forces us to continue in the face of opposition, no matter how great or how small it may be. C.One of the greatest needs of the Christian is to have an awareness that God has given us motivation to help us when we come under any opposition. D.If we are doing what God has commanded us, and living in the way that we should, we will suffer in some way. 2 Timothy 3:12 Yes, and all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution.
  4. 4. MOTIVATION E. Suffering does not always mean stripes, death, or scars. F. There will always be suffering when righteousness prevails in our life. G.We need some kind of motivation to help us endure the sufferings of the day.

  5. 5. I. THE SCALES ARE ON OUR BEHALF <><><> THE GOOD ALWAYS OUT- WEIGHS THE BAD.
  6. 6. I. THE GOOD ALWAYS OUT- WEIGHS THE BAD. Romans 8:18-25 For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. 19 For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God. 20 For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it in hope; 21 because the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. 22 For we know that the whole creation groans and labors with birth pangs together until now. 23 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. 24 For we were saved in this hope, but hope that is seen is not hope; for why does one still hope for what he sees? 25 But if we hope for what we do not see, we eagerly wait for it with perseverance.
  7. 7. I. THE GOOD ALWAYS OUT- WEIGHS THE BAD. A. Encouraged by the glory to be given to us - Romans 8:18-19 For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. 19 For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God. 1. We misunderstand Glory. - Examples: streets of gold, gates of pearl, mansions, etc.
  8. 8. I. THE GOOD ALWAYS OUT- WEIGHS THE BAD. A. Encouraged by the glory to be given – Rom 8:18-19 1. We misunderstand Glory. - Examples: streets of gold, gates of pearl, mansions, etc. 2. The creation will be delivered from corruption - Romans 8:20-22. For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it in hope; 21 because the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. 22 For we know that the whole creation groans and labors with birth pangs together until now.
  9. 9. I. THE GOOD ALWAYS OUT- WEIGHS THE BAD. 3. Our bodies will be redeemed. We have something to hope for. – Romans 8:23-25. 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. 24 For we were saved in this hope, but hope that is seen is not hope; for why does one still hope for what he sees? 25 But if we hope for what we do not see, we eagerly wait for it with perseverance. B. You suffer, if the need be, but you remember that no matter how bad it gets, the good is far better.
  10. 10. 2. WE HAVE HELP THE HOLY SPIRIT INTERCEDING ON OUR BEHALF
  11. 11. 2. WE HAVE HELP THE HOLY SPIRIT Romans 8:26-27 Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. 27 Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God.
  12. 12. 2. WE HAVE HELP THE SPIRIT. A. HE communicates to the Godhead the things that man is not capable of saying. B. What God says is that "I UNDERSTAND" what you are going through. C. Hebrews 2:14-15 Inasmuch then as the children have partaken of flesh and blood, He Himself likewise shared in the same, that through death He might destroy him who had the power of death, that is, the devil, 15 and release those who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage. D. Hebrews 4:14-16 Seeing then that we have a great High Priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. 15 For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin. 16 Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need. E. Our Jesus knows because he has been here.
  13. 13. 2. WE HAVE HELP THE SPIRIT. SONG 538: "My Jesus Knows" My Jesus knows when I am lonely, He knows each pain, He sees each tear; He understands each lonely heartache, He understands because He cares. My Jesus knows when I am burdened, He knows how much my heart can bear; He lifts me up when I am sinking, And brings me joy beyond compare. When other friends seem to forget me, When skies are dark, when hope is gone; By faith I feel His arms about me, And hear Him say, “You’re not alone.” My Jesus knows just what I need, O, yes, He knows just what I need; He satisfies, and every need supplies, Yes, He knows just what I need.
  14. 14. 3. GOD'S PROVIDENCE IS WORKING IN OUR BEHALF
  15. 15. 3. GOD'S PROVIDENCE Romans 8:28-30 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. 29 For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. 30 Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified.
  16. 16. 3. GOD'S PROVIDENCE A. God's providence is working behind the scenes to work things out for our good. - Example: A "Master Weaver" works behind the work of a young man who is trying to learn to weave and makes his mistakes work out to a beautiful pattern. B. God says, "Hang on. I can take the worst that they can do to you and work it out for your good.“ C. Bad in itself happening to a person is not good. 1. God is able to take that bad and make it good. 2. Example: The CROSS. D. No matter what they do, you will be glorified.
  17. 17. 4. JUDGMENT IS IN OUR BEHALF
  18. 18. 4. JUDGMENT IS IN OUR BEHALF Romans 8:31-34 What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? 32 He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things? 33 Who shall bring a charge against God's elect? It is God who justifies. 34 Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us.
  19. 19. 4. JUDGMENT IS IN OUR BEHALF A. When God comes in the day of judgment, who will be able to bring a charge against you to keep you out of heaven? 1. Not the FATHER... v.31-33. a. He is for us. b. He gave His Son for us. c. He will freely give us all things. 2. Not the SON... v.34. a. He died for us. b. He arose for us. c. He ascended for us. d. He is interceding for us. B. YOU are the only thing that will keep you out of heaven.
  20. 20. V. WE HAVE THE LOVE OF GOD ON OUR BEHALF
  21. 21. V. WE HAVE THE LOVE OF GOD Romans 8:35-39 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? 36 As it is written: "For Your sake we are killed all day long; We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter." 37 Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. 38 For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, 39 nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
  22. 22. V. WE HAVE THE LOVE OF GOD A.No matter what happens to you, remember, God loves you. B.God's people have always had to suffer - Romans 8:36 As it is written: "For Your sake we are killed all day long; We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter." C.In spite of all our suffering. We are more than conquerors. D.The only thing that can come between you and Jesus is your disobedience to Him.
  23. 23. YOUR MOTIVATION? A.Have lost your motivation to serve God. B.Realize today that everything is working in your behalf. C.God will take care of you, just be FAITHFUL. D.The first part of Romans chapter 8 gives us great assurance and motivation for living the Christian life.
  24. 24. YOUR MOTIVATION? D. There is no condemnation to those in Christ - Romans 8:1-17 There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. 2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death. 3 For what the law could not do in that it was weak through the flesh, God did by sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, on account of sin: He condemned sin in the flesh, 4 that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit. 5 For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit. >>>
  25. 25. YOUR MOTIVATION? 6 For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. 7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God; for it is not subject to the law of God, nor indeed can be. 8 So then, those who are in the flesh cannot please God. 9 But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. Now if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he is not His. 10 And if Christ is in you, the body is dead because of sin, but the Spirit is life because of righteousness. 11 But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.
  26. 26. YOUR MOTIVATION? E. We are debtors to live for Him - Romans 8:13- 14Therefore, brethren, we are debtors--not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh. 13 For if you live according to the flesh you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live. 14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God. F. We are children of God and Heirs – Romans 8:15-17 For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, "Abba, Father." 16 The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, 17 and if children, then heirs--heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together.
  27. 27. HAVE A MOTIVATED WEEK
