To read the Bible in a year, read Romans 8.19–39 on August 8, In the year of our Lord 2015

In Romans 8.23, Paul spoke of our future adoption, the redemption of our bodies, and then he wrote,
For we were saved in this hope, but hope that is seen is not hope; for why does one still hope for what he sees? But if we hope for what we do not see, we eagerly wait for it with perseverance (Romans 8.24–25).
Our hope is to be resurrected, showing that such an event still awaits us. Do not believe anyone who says the resurrection has already happened. For you see, we only hope for that which we cannot see or do not have at the present. Since we currently have hope for the resurrection, that means it has not happened yet.
