“Outwardly we are wasting away.” That often describes the reality of life, doesn’t it? Troubles, pain, broken relations, illnesses. The barrage of these can make it seem like we never get ahead.
“Yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day.” The promises of God’s love renew the hearts of believers. We know that Jesus has set us free from sin and that he is at work for our good. As we hear God’s Word, we see the love of God again. These promises remain true, even when the troubles of life don't go away.
You are, no doubt, facing a variety of burdens and trials. Left unchecked, they will wear you down. Make time to be renewed! Make time for Jesus and his Word. Make time to hear the message of God’s presence and love for you so that you are renewed and strengthened for your life of faith and service.
Do not lose heart! The Lord Jesus is with you and will give inner you strength to face life’s many challenges.
2 Corinthians 4:16 (NIV) "Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day."
