The only reason we can hope today is because of Jesus Christ. I look on the world around me; it came from the hand of God; it abounds with beautiful views; but still it affords cause for mourning. At the consciousness of the endowment as already possessed by us — awakening within us aspirations to do the work that angels do, having a desire to depart and be with Jesus — a training that seems to unfit for the low occupations of earthly life. This passage wasn’t written to describe how awful this world is. We think of King David as a mighty man … a strong and courageous soldier with a deep faith in God.

The groaning soul of the believer, carrying the burden of the flesh, looks there. Oh, when shall these pangs cease! Look on. In illustrating this we must dwell on the two phrases on which this nature depends. How can that be just? Of hope. These are the signs that Death has rights over the body, and that he will assert his rights. It dies, it dissolves, it lies hidden, God works in it as He pleases. The seed of life sown in death, the long hidden process, the dying first before there is life indeed, the maintenance of the original character, where, nevertheless, all is new, the likeness to Christ in both, the intention of all to serve, in all the perfect sovereignty of God.3. As soon as a man believes in Christ, his soul is translated from death unto life, and the body indeed becomes a temple for the Holy Ghost; but the grace of God makes no change in the body in other respects. The greatest piety cannot preserve a man from growing old, nor deliver his body from corruption, weakness, and dishonour. Yet that hope is not a hope for himself, but for his kind. 19, 20 of this chapter.
