The apostle Paul writes about his own experience in aging and what might also include the hardships (e.g. beatings and weariness of travel) that he endured. He wrote these words.... "Even though our outer nature is wasting away, our inner nature is being renewed day by day." 2 Cor. 4:16
Paul realized that even though his physical nature might be going downhill, he knew there was something being renewed within him. He was strengthened in his faith. I believe for us, it is that despite whatever we might suffer, we can know that our faith can rise above it. It can be strengthen or renewed each day, by the hope that we have with Jesus Christ. The one who suffered and died also rose from the dead. We also can keep rising amid adversity and grow stronger in faith.
I would invite you to contemplate this passage of Scripture and may God's blessing be upon your worship this Sunday.
