“Though our outer man is decaying, yet our inner man is being renewed day by day.”
2 Corinthians 4:16
Outer man, inner man
After we are born, we mature from a child to an adult, then eventually grow old and decay. No matter how much we exercise or take care of ourselves, we eventually become frail. That is the “outer man”. So what is the “inner man”? Our heart/soul does not decay. However our “inner man” can become depressed or weak due to stress or other external stimulations. We need to take care of our “inner man”.
Renewed day by day
We cannot protect our heart/soul by ourselves. The best we can do is to maintain the current status. However, we can be refreshed by being in contact with God day by day. Let’s take some time each day to spend with God!
