In this which many regard as the greatest chapter in all of scripture, and Romans 8:28 as the greatest verse, we come to grips with so much that Paul has to say. In verses 24-25, the hope and expectation of the new humanity is described. Then in verses 26-27 he tells us that the Holy Spirit works in us to remedy our weaknesses, that He is basic to our hope and our expectation, that He prays in us and for us. Then in verses 28-30, Gods perfect purpose, we are told, ensures the inevitable realization of our hope, and our triumph in and through all things.
