Treasures In Jars Of Clay




"The god of this age has blinded the minds
of unbelievers, so that they cannot see
the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ,
who is the image of God.

For God, who said, 'Let light shine out of
darkness,' made His light shine in our
hearts to give us the light of the knowledge
of the glory of God in the face of Christ.

But we have this treasure in jars of clay to
show that this all-surpassing power is from
God and not from us."

2Corinthians 4:4; 4: 6-7


People, who have not accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and savior and who have not been born again, are blinded and cannot see the glory of the word of God. For they are steeped in sins and are still in the state of depravity. They laugh and make fun of those who follow the way of the Lord as presented in the Bible. But the Holy Spirit, who dwells in our hearts as His very temple, made His light shine in our hearts to give us the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ. And to show that His light and His power came from God and not from men, He placed this light and His power in jars of clay (our puny mortal bodies) to show that this all surpassing power is from God and not from men. As we continue to follow the way of Christ in living in this transient and decadent world, we reflect the glory of Christ in our lives transformed by the Holy Spirit from glory to glory until we reach the whole measure of the fullness of Jesus Christ where we shine like shining stars in the firmament of heaven.
