A verse to memorize/meditate on

I have memorized this verse before, but I am working on recommitting it to memory this week. Check it out.
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!
