Hidden Treasures

But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us.  II Corinthians 4:7


Often in ancient times, items of precious value were stored in earthen vessels or clay pots. Today, we hold a treasure in our earthly bodies – the indwelling Christ who lives in all Christians. 

The focus is on the treasure, not what holds it.  A clay pot can become scratched, marred and even crack.  In our lives today, we may be imperfect or a cracked pot, but our aim is for others to look beyond our weaknesses to see that we in ourselves are not everything, but the excellency of God’s power is what drives and equips us.   
We  hold a treasure, but it’s all about HIM!



  1. How right you are! It's not about me, but about Him!

  2. I love the premise of your thought, but was a little distracted by the error in the wording of the picture.
