“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.




  1. Do not lose heart.


  1. Make Jesus the center of attention.


  1. Finish well.
