And In This Hope, We Rejoice

This connection between God’s glory and our seeing demands that we understand the two kinds of seeing we have spoken about.  For in one sense the glory of God is not yet visible, and in another sense it is (Romans 8:18).  This means that the glory is not yet here to see (Romans 8:24).  And in this hope we rejoice (Romans 5:2)
