Application The present applications of Paul’s message are clear for contemporary Christians. First, Paul is using the concept of suffering, the tension of victorious living in a world ravaged by sin, within a larger context. In the process of placing suffering within the context of the experience of all of believers and creation Paul explains the work of the Holy Spirit.

    to change their behaviors is conveyed through the Misfit, who comments “Jesus was the only One that ever raised the dead… and He shouldn’t have done it… and if He didn’t, then it’s nothing for you to do but enjoy the few minutes you got left the best way you can-by killing somebody or burning down this house or doing some other meanness to him.
