We have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. (2 Corinthians 4.7)
I was looking for an image to go with this verse and I came across a picture to which I added the words to make the image in this post.
Looking at the lamp really helped me to understand what the Bible is saying more clearly. Although it is fragile, it can still contain the oil that is needed to keep the flame alive.
Even if you feel fragile you are still able to contain the treasure of the all-surpassing power of God. It really is what is on the inside that counts!
Are we conscious of God’s presence in us? Are we drawing on his strength and power in these testing times or are we trying to cope alone?
