  1. Redemption of our bodies could mean we are no longer bullied for the way we look.

  2. I think verse 26 is one of the verses in the whole Bible that speaks to me and comforts me the most. My prayers are often tangled messes, it seems, and I give up and just rest in the Spirit, knowing that God knows my heart and mind much better than I. And, sometimes, I “hear” the Spirit and am moved to act. How glorious and treasured are those times!
