We have this Treasure in earthen vessels…

LORD, you are the Potter, we are the Clay.

LORD, you are the Treasure, we are the Container.

LORD, you are freeing us from Confusion.

LORD, you are giving us Clarity.

LORD, “All this is for your sake so that, as your kindness overflows in the lives of many people, it will produce even more thanksgiving to the glory of God.

That is why we, jars of clay (2 Corinthians 4:7), are not discouraged. Though outwardly we are wearing out, inwardly we are renewed day by day. Our suffering is light and temporary and is producing for us an eternal glory that is greater than anything we can imagine. We don’t look for things that can be seen but for things that can’t be seen. Things that can be seen are only temporary. But things that can’t be seen last forever.” (2 Corinthians 4:13–18, GW)

By grace, we rest in our “jar-ness” and rejoice in the treasure we get to contain and display. “Not even Solomon in all his majesty was dressed like one of these…” (Matthew 6:29, GW)
