2 Corinthians 4:7-12

But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. We are hard pressed on every side,but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed. 10 We always carry around in our body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in our body. 11 For we who are alive are always being given over to death for Jesus’ sake, so that his life may also be revealed in our mortal body. 12 So then, death is at work in us, but life is at work in you.

  1. Our bodies are amazing in their design and complexity. Yet they pass away, decompose, and are gone. They are mortal and temporal. Yet the life of Christ is revealed in us to show His glory and to reveal that nothing seen in us can be of us or our mortal bodies.The more frail I and my body are, the more the power of Christ is revealed in me as my sufficiency.
