Thoughts for the Weekend

But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed. We always carry around in our body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in our body. 2 Cor. 4:7-10 (NIV)

We are God's treasure, even though we are flawed and imperfect. The glory of God, the incredible truth of His existence and power, the truest proof of who and what He is, is seen through us. It may not seem like the best plan, but God tells us his light dwells in us, and though we are like cracked clay vessels, His glory shines through our brokenness.

Because of this, we can have hope. We can endure in any circumstance, we can learn to be content when we have little. We can absorb any blow, and handle even the most violent of storms. Never forget who you are, and who you belong to. God bought you with a price, and so we honor Him with our lives.

Let the life that God offers to everyone be seen in you. See you Sunday.
