Vessels of clay. June 22
But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us. 2 Corinthians 4:7
What a treasure to have Christ inside us. The eternal spirit lives within us thru Christ Jesus. To know that the God who has done so much in the Bible and in history, dwells by the Holy Spirit in us Is amazing. But as our verse says, we carry this treasure in a Vessel of clay that is subject to frailties. This vessel at times can experience troubles, weaknesses, and perplexities of many types. Sadness’s and sorrows can creep into our vessels of clay. Yet before we lose heart over all our vessels weaknesses, remember what the rest of our verse says: “ that the excellency may be of God and not us. Meaning, we are weak but He is strong. And we can put our hope and trust in Him. Then He gets the glory as it should be.
