Maybe you never stopped to think that as our world turns our sunset happens at the exact instant a beautiful dawn is breaking somewhere. That is what the apostle Paul is telling his dear friends. While his own life hastened towards a sunset of suffering the dawn of the light of God”s life was beginning in theirs.
God puts that free choice in each of our hands. The tighter we cling to our own life the less chance we will have of setting on fire the torch of faith in others!
So death is at work in us, but life in you. 2 Corinthians 4:12 ESV
