"For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day" (2 Cor. 4:16).
The outward man, or the body, is decaying. It's growing older, just as the house you may live in at 504 Chestnut Street is growing older.
But do you know what? You are not getting any older!
What does the scripture text say about the real you?
Does it say, "Yet the inward man is perishing?" No.
"Is it decaying?" No. "Is it growing older?" No!
It says, "The inward man is RENEWED DAY BY DAY!"
You will never be any older than you are right now!
You're no older now than you were a few years ago. You may know more, but you're not any older. The inward man, "the real you," is renewed day by day!
Confession: I am a spirit being. I am the child of the Father of spirits. The real me is a "hidden man," an inward man. I am not getting any older. I am an eternal spirit being. I am being renewed day by day.
