  • On the road to spiritual renewal

    A spiritual change is the greatest change that can take place in any of us. Paul tells the Romans, “There is no one righteous, not even one” (3:10-12). So a spiritual renewal is needed for all of us.

    We are renewed when Christ comes into our hearts and lives for the old is gone and the new has come (2 Corinthians 5:17).

    But what about down the road? Is it possible to experience even more renewal later? Yes. Paul in Philippians 4:10-13 is talking to Christians who have already met Christ and now he gives three areas of renewal needed.
