But we have this treasure in jars of clay, to show that the surpassing power belongs to God and not to us. (2 Corinthians 4:7)

Two cups of coffee on the table in the garden

Let’s not kid ourselves.  There is nothing good in us other than what we receive from the Lord.  We are simply clay pots –

•breakable  •disposable  •replaceable

But, when the Lord fills us up with the treasure of His word, with the joy of our salvation, and the beauty of His love, we become a precious thing.  We become valuable and cherished.

Clay pots that God has filled with treasure.

  • A light in the darkness.
    • The glory of Christ.
      • A worthy vessel of the Holy Spirit.

How lovely is that?
