Day Five – Being Renewed

Friday, April 1st, 2011

2 Corinthians 4:16-18

16 Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. 17 For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. 18 So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.


Reflection:

Paul reminds us in this passage of the hope that we have in Christ.  We no longer have to be consumed by the circumstances that surround our lives, but rather, through our circumstances, we have God’s promise of renewal.   We are achieving an eternal glory that puts our life circumstances in their proper context within God’s eternal perspective.  Because of this, we can stand firm and live fully for the Lord - not losing heart, living in this eternal perspective and being renewed day by day.

Responding to the Transmission:

Let’s thank God for this eternal reality.  Let’s bring our concerns before Him asking for and trusting that He will renew us as we fix our eyes on Him.  Let’s pray that God will help us see our lives through this eternal perspective, looking forward to the glory that is ours in Christ.
