The light of Christ, kept in ‘Clay Pots’

Our ‘Clay Pots’ will crumble! 2 Corinthians 4:6-18 “For God said ‘Let there be light’…which is the glory of God that is seen in the face of Jesus Christ. But this precious treasure-this light and power…is held in ‘clay pots’, that is, in our weak bodies. We are pressed on every side by troubles, but we are not crushed and broken…perplexed, but we don’t give up and quit…hunted down, but God never abandons us…knocked down but we get up again…Through suffering, these bodies of ours constantly share in the death of Jesus so that the life of Jesus may also be seen in our bodies…The same God who raised our Lord Jesus will also raise us with Jesus…That’s why we can NEVER give up…For our present troubles are quite small and won’t last very long. Yet they produce for us an immeasurable great glory that will last forever! For the troubles we see will soon be over, but the joys to come will last forever!!” We are but clay pots filled with the light of God. So hang on because God will NOT abandon us. We live in His power.
