Read 2 Corinthians 4:13-5:1


Wednesday

Read 2 Corinthians 4:13-5:1

13 The scripture says, “I spoke because I believed.” In the same spirit of faith we also speak because we believe. 14 We know that God, who raised the Lord Jesus to life, will also raise us up with Jesus and take us, together with you, into his presence. 15 All this is for your sake; and as God's grace reaches more and more people, they will offer to the glory of God more prayers of thanksgiving.

16 For this reason we never become discouraged. Even though our physical being is gradually decaying, yet our spiritual being is renewed day after day. 17 And this small and temporary trouble we suffer will bring us a tremendous and eternal glory, much greater than the trouble. 18 For we fix our attention, not on things that are seen, but on things that are unseen. What can be seen lasts only for a time, but what cannot be seen lasts forever.

5 For we know that when this tent we live in—our body here on earth—is torn down, God will have a house in heaven for us to live in, a home he himself has made, which will last forever.

"Even though our physical being is gradually decaying, yet our spiritual being is renewed day after day." - 2 Cor 4:16

God is always at work in us preparing us for eternity.

Pray

Lord help me to remember the truth of your renewing me spiritually even though my body is often weak and tired.
