Therefore we do not lose heart, but though our outer man is decaying, yet our inner man is being renewed day by day. 2 Corinthians 4:16
Life is a struggle, every day we get closer to the reality of death. Most people don’t want to talk about this, but this is a reality you cant ignore. And while our physical bodies are growing older and dying, ours souls inside are being renewed everyday
How is this possible? Its all possible because of our Lord Jesus Christ defeating sin and death. Because He lives eternally we can live eternally also. However without Christ you are just the walking dead, a bunch of dry bones in the wilderness waiting for the grave.
For momentary, light affliction is producing for us an eternal weight of glory far beyond all comparison, 2 Corinthians 4:17
And while we struggle today, we deal with pain, suffering, disease, illnesses, the glory that is to come will far outshine the past. The day when we inherit our eternal bodies and meet our Lord face to face, all the pain and struggle will be remembered never again
while we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen; for the things which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not seen are eternal. 2 Corinthians 4:18
This is why its important to focus on the eternal kingdom and not this temporary world. We can easily focus on all the negativity of this world, but as Jesus said “Take Heart because He has overcome the world! (John 16:33) Amen!
