“But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, so that the surpassing greatness of the power will be of God and not from ourselves” (2 Corinthians 4:7).
As followers of Christ, we are keenly aware that we are but a vessel for the true treasure that lies within — “the Light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ” (v.6). It is in the frailty, weakness, and brokenness of this earthly body that the power of God is able to shine forth. While those watching might think that we are pushing through by our own power, we know the real story. It is a story we must not only treasure, but share.
