2 Corinthians 4:7
But we have this treasure in jars of Clay, to show that the surpassing power belongs to God and not us!
I pulled in to ingles parking lot around 10 till 6, shins are giving me a little bit of trouble so I didn’t run this morning but I have the privilege this week to bring a good word to those who came!
when I pulled up I saw Big Pappys son, F3 Nothing waiting, he had started early this morning and had already finished his run. Then I see Wichita running in, shortly after here comes Rabbit Ears, Newton, and Mr Pibbs!
they get in, catch there breath and we get started!
I shared the verse, which was part of yesterday’s message at church, explaining that we are the jars of Clay, in the verse, and the treasure is the gospel! The good news of Of salvation through Jesus! But a lot of times the church is more worried about the jars then the treasure! We tend to at times take our focus off of Christ and turn it towards ourselves! This is something we have to fight to keep from happening, and it’s not complicated! But sometimes hard to do! It’s not complicated in that all we need to do is chase after Christ, seek his glory in what we do, this will keep our eyes on Him and us in check as we go about life. But… hard to do in that we are prone to wonder, get prideful, bite the hook of temptation at times, rely on ourselves and not God. But I am thankful I know a God who can flood the jars with grace and forgiveness wash the junk out! Remember men, tomorrow is a new day, the first day of the rest of your life! I just put my oldest son to bed for the night and we talked about this awesome forgiveness that the Lord gives us, it’s like having a new day, a fresh start! He doesn’t hang to what you done, and doesn’t want us to either, nope, he says put your eyes back on me and let’s roll! hope you all have a good week!
