Treasure in Jars of Clay

Treasure in Jars of Clay

2 Corinthians 4:7 But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us.

Followers of Jesus contain a treasure inside – the light of the gospel and power of the Holy Spirit. This wealth of purpose, hope and supernatural life far exceeds any earthly riches.

Surpassing Power

The power at work in us is all-surpassing, divine, and unlimited. It accomplishes more than we could imagine. This resurrection power raised Jesus from the dead!

Jars of Clay

But this treasure resides in simple clay jars – fragile human vessels. We are weak, flawed, and breakable. Yet God chooses to entrust us with His priceless truth and power.

To God Be the Glory

The treasure in jars of clay reveals God’s power comes from Him alone, not us. In humility, we rely on His strength working through our weakness, that He alone may be glorified.
