For we have this treasure [the treasure of the gospel] in jars of clay, to show that the surpassing power belongs to God and not to us. --2 Corinthians 4:7
So, several reasons to be grateful for this truth:
- We didn't earn the treasure. It was give to us.
- The gospel is a treasure.
- Our bodies (jars of clay) are insignificant, in compared to what is contained within.
- We don't have power in and of ourselves.
- Christ is all-powerful. He can be relied on!
