Therefore we don’t faint, but though our outward man is decaying, yet our inward man is renewed day by day.
2 Corinthians 4:16
Your outward man means the body.
As you age, the body will become weaker. But the inward man, your spiritual nature, can be daily renewed by the Spirit of God (Romans 7:22; Ephesians 3:16). Constant renewal keeps you united to God (Romans 12:2).
The Holy Spirit renews you with new supplies of spiritual life, energy, courage, and faith. When you let the Holy Spirit renew you, He will restore the image of God in your soul.
So, though your outward man may grow old and decay over the years, your inward man continues to grow in grace as long as you live.
Every believer needs this daily renewal to keep their experience with God from becoming callous and formal.
Your spiritual renewal brings new light from God’s Word, new cleansing of heart and mind, new experiences of grace, to share with others.
Let God’s Spirit renew you today – and every day!
Help me let the Holy Spirit renew me each day.
Let every day, find me closer and closer to You.
In Jesus’ Name, I pray, Amen.
