2 Corinthians 4:16
"No more for me; I'm out."
"That's it. That's all. I'm done."
In any good and worthy endeavor, it's always too soon to quit.
You can't win if you don't play.
If he can't defeat you, he'll try to deflate you.
None of us here today are immune to discouragement.
His life was not easy.
1. Life is a Daily Event.
  • You'll never get to the point where you can say,
  • "It'll be smooth sailing from here on out."
  • The problems of life will come after me every single day, and I will deal with them every single day.
2. The Externals of Life are Secondary, and Always Will Be.
  • Today I feel more alive than I ever have.
  • "Outwardly we are wasting away."
  • This world is not my home, I'm just passing through.
  • Because it is impossible that any of these things would ever be enough.
  • Many of the things we spend our lives pursuing don't matter all that much in the grand scheme of things.
  • 3. Renewal Needs to Happen on a Daily Basis.
  • "No it doesn't. Neither does bathing. That' why you need to it on a daily basis."
  • "Inwardly renewed" on a day-by-day basis.
  • • Renew Your Mind.
  • • Renew Your Spirit.
  • "Be still and know that I am God." (Psalm 46:10)
  • • Renew Your Heart.
A joyful heart is good medicine. (Proverbs 17:22)
  • We should avoid the fire fighters, and seek out the fire lighters.
  • He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he refreshes my soul. (Psalm 23:2-3)
  • Every day he wants to refresh and restore and renew your soul.
  • "We never lose heart."
  • Our hope is built on nothing less than Jesus' blood and righteousness.
  • It's always too soon to quit.
