Keep Running

January 25, 2015

Pastor Jonathan brings to us an inspiring message, "Keep Running," from 2 Corinthians 4:16-18. [powerpress] 2 Corinthians 4:16-18 (ESV)

So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day. For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal.

Paul describes four ways to not lose heart when we face trials and disappointments.

  • Renew the inner self.
  • Re-frame the suffering.
  • Refocus on the invisible.
  • Remember the mission.
