2 Corinthians 4:7 But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. 8 We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; 9 persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.
Nothing can prepare you for the realization that you, like Paul, like very other disciple is like this clay pot. When I lived in North Carolina I toured “Pottery Road” and saw all of the beautiful and strange creations of every type of potter from simplistic primitive to slick industrial level artisans. Just so. Every pot has imperfections, but each one could hold a torch ready to shine forth like the soldiers of Gideon. (See Judges 7:15-20)
We can only let the light shine through when we are broken to God. When we put off all of our pretentions and arrogance, when we have done with our self-sufficiencies, and when we come to the place where we must reach out to him or perish, then will the light shine forth.
