Our physical activity depends on
renewal of our bodily needs
through nouishment, etc.
Our spiritual activity and ministry depends on
spiritual renewal through communication
with Our Lord and His Word.
“There's a problem...
when the inflow of spiritual renewal
doesn't replenish the outflow of spiritual ministry.
For the spiritual life should also be the source
of inner recreation and restoration
since it is the way we most directly
experience the Lord Himself in daily life.
Through our spiritual disciplines
(rightly motivated and practiced)
come many of the most
refreshing blessings of knowing Christ.”
