“We Have This Treasure”
2 Corinthians 4
“But 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 (NIV)
- God’s priceless treasure is in fragile, perishable people
“Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day.” 2 Corinthians 4:16 (NIV)
- This life is short. Eternity is long!
“Our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.” 2 Corinthians 4:17 (NIV)
- If you know that pressures & opposition will come to your service for God, and God uses them to strengthen you & work His power through you, you won’t lose heart & quit.
- Do not lose heart.
- Make Jesus the center of attention.
- Finish well.
