Life in the Spirit: Groaning for Heaven – 7/03/2016

Sermon based on Romans 8:18-27

My five-year-old daughter asked me a good question the other day.  Why do we have to die in order to go to heaven?  Surely God could take us to heaven without having to go through all the pain and suffering that is involved.  Why are we allowed to suffer or struggle in this world?  Suffering is the place where we learn about hope.
