God the Holy Spirit – 35
The Holy Spirit of God is the blessed Spirit of adoption and redemption

Romans 8:22 For we know that the whole creation groans and travails in pain together until now. 23 And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the first fruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.

We groan. We groan because we are part of a creation in travail. Creation groans. We groan; even those of us who have the Holy Spirit. We have the first fruits of the Spirit. Someday, we will experience complete redemption. Not only the Spiritual redemption we currently experience, but the adoption and redemption of our physical being – someday we will have new bodies to go along with our renewed minds and the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. For now, we groan.

O Heavenly Father,
We long. We wait. We groan. Jesus Christ groaned when He was a man here in His creation. We long for the redemption of our physical bodies – the new bodies you have promised to your children. No more groaning. No more tears. No more crying. No more fear. No more death. We long. We wait. For You. For no more groaning.
Amen
