Groaning and Travailing

Albert N. Martin

Romans 8. In laying out the privileges of those who are adopted into the family of God by grace, on the basis of the work of Christ, the Apostle has just declared that all such adopted ones are given the spirit of adoption, and are given the spirit of heirs and joint heirs with Christ.
