Ray Stedman - October 9, 1977
The Folly of Platitudes
From Series: "Let God be God"
"This book mentions a time when 'the sons of God shouted with joy' at the creation of the world. But other scriptures tell us about a time that is coming when the sons of God will be revealed. Paul calls it 'the manifestation of the sons of God,' when all creation will shout in a greater glory than was ever hailed at creation, in the new creation, the new thing that God has brought into being by means of the sufferings, the trials, and the tribulations of this present scene. That is why scripture speaks in numerous passages about 'this slight momentary affliction preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison,' and of how the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that will be revealed in us. When that day breaks, the one thing for which we will be infinitely thankful, the one thing above all others that will thrill us and cheer us and cause us to glory, is the fact that out of all the created universe we were chosen to be the ones who bore the name of God in the hour of danger and affliction, problem and trial. There is no higher honor than that. That is what Jesus means when he says, 'Blessed are you when men persecute you and say all manner of evil against you falsely for my name's sake. Rejoice and be exceeding glad, for great is your honor before the Father. For so persecuted they the prophets who were before you.'"
