Therefore we do not lose heart, but though our outer man is decaying, yet our inner man is being renewed day by day. - >2 Corinthians 4:16
Albert Speer, Hitler’s architect, writes that the Nazi dictator was fascinated with monumental structures, and wanted Speer to design them according to the “theory of ruin value.”* Hitler wanted Speer to project what the decayed buildings would look like in a thousand years, and draw them to retain elegance. Resisting decay in natural objects is futile. However, for the human spirit alive with God’s life, there is no decay, only a constancy of renewal until the grand consummation of joy and peace when we meet Christ in His glory.
*Albert Speer, Inside the Third Reich, New York: Random House, 1983.
