“For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day.” 2 Corinthians 4:16
This word should be our watchword at the beginning of every new year.
The longer we stay on the earth the more our body glory fade away.
At the beginning of each year our body tends to tell us a message “am fading away”
But as a Christian, our inward man (spirit) is renewed day by day and year by year.
In the beginning of 2016, many of us started well in the spirit, we love the Lord, we made sacrifices and we were so zealous for Him.
But as the year grows, our love for Christ diminished, the love of this world, the care of this world choked our spiritual fervency!
We started believing our circumstances and the news that were going on around us. We lost our focus! We lost our prayer altar, we lost that relationship with Him that keep us going.
Before we know it, its already December! Thank God, rapture didn’t meet us in all this.
Now, it’s the beginning of another year!
Many do not have this opportunity you have now, they died along the line. If you can remember, you heard news about various death that happen last year even the one you knew but here you are in good health.
To the Lord, this new year is a new opportunity for you to renew your inward man and retrace yourself back to Him.
A new opportunity to live in the spirit and maintain relationship with your savior.
See this year as a special gift from the Lord, and don’t think you get to know it by your smartness.
The year is full of opportunity and grace.
Spend each day of it in the Lord. Always “fervent in the spirit” and “be diligent” and be rest assured that the Lord is there with you.
At the end, if the Lord coming tarries, you will shout HALLELUJAH.
Happy New Year!
