WPC Warm Up, September 21, 2015
Is there anything in the world that truly gets better with age? Certainly anyone that has purchased "state-of-the-art" tech knows the title only lasts in the store. Brand new cars depreciate the moment they are driven off the lot. Whether it is our degrees and certifications, our bodies and health, our minds and our institutions the process of fading glory is inevitable. Even the most expensive vintage Bordeaux wines last a maximum of 50 years before they start becoming bitter vinegar. What about our faith? Paul in 2 Corinthians 3 teaches that a life infused with the Holy Spirit actually does not fade but advances in the glory of Christlikeness from "one degree to the next." Has this been your experience? Is your faith growing or fading? What about our marriage, family and church? Are we growing with "ever increasing glory" or fading? Let's dive into 2 Corinthians 3 and learn what makes the difference!
