"I'm Not the Apostle I Used to Be"

Text: "Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day" 2 Corinthians 4:16.

Age has a way of leaving its mark on the human body. Wrinkles and diminished stature are part of it. Paul's speech is picturesque when he says, "Outwardly we are wasting away." It is almost as if he finds himself saying, "I'm getting older. I'm not the apostle I used to be." And, of course, he would have been speaking the truth.

Deterioration and decline are the sad gifts of extended life in this world. But something else can and does go on. Like Paul says, we can be "renewed day by day."

Explaining that God is in business every day, renewing, regenerating and reinvigorating His servants is a very large truth. Like an immense ice flow, it can carry you a very, very long way in the journey of faith.

Daily Scripture and daily prayer are the conduits of the Holy Spirit's renewal.

In fact, daily joy will do wonders for your wrinkles!
