THE AGING PROCESS
The aging process brings dysfunction, atrophy, and loss of energy. Unfortunately it also brings loss of hair, hearing, health, height, heart, and hormones. What older people say is true: “We can’t do what we used to do.” It seems that no matter what we do we keep wearing out. Flesh just wears out.
Nothing contrasts the difference between flesh and Spirit quite like aging. There is little that is similar in Spirit like Spiritual aging and physical aging. All flesh wrinkles, sags, and puckers up, but Spiritual aging brings constant renewal, freshness and restoration. From the moment of Spiritual rebirth, we just keep getting better forever. The apostle Paul said, “If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation, old things have passed away, behold, all things have become new” (2 Corinthians 5:17). The longer we walk with God the better we age in Spirit. This is real aging. Aging in the Lord. Growing old in the Spirit is such a good thing.
“It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh is no help at all. The words that I have spoken to you are spirit and life.” Jesus
