Who subjected it, in hope…21 that the creation itself will be set free from its bondage to
Decay and brought into the glorious freedom of the children of God.

of our bodies.…
The “former things,” the sin and sorrow of the past, shall then fade away from the
memory of God’s people, absorbed in the abounding and everlasting joy.

They put new wine into fresh wine-skins.”
