DO NOT LOSE HEART
  
II Corinthians 4:16-18
  
 I. V. 16a AN INCREDIBLE STATEMENT
  
II. V. 16b A FAMILIAR STRUGGLE
  
III. V. 17-18 A WONDERFUL SECRET
 
How do we “not lose heart”? We doing it by seeing that the “inward man is renewed day by day”. We do that by preaching to ourselves. We do it by reminding ourselves of the truths found in this passage.
Verse 7: We are “earthen vessels”.
Verses 8-13: Reminds us that we will be troubled here, because Jesus was troubled here.
Verse 14: Reminds us that God has a plan in all this.
Verse 15: Reminds us that everything in life is for the glory of God.
Verses 16-18: We are challenged to get our eyes off this world with its sin and problems.
