For his Spirit joins with our spirit to affirm that we are God's children.
Yet what we suffer now is nothing compared to the glory he will reveal to us later.
And we believers also groan, even though we have the Holy Spirit within us as a foretaste of future glory, for we long for our bodies to be released from sin and suffering.
