Jars of Clay

Understanding we are only “clay jars” is a reminder that God created us the way we are when we were born.  I was later made a believer when God used my future wife to witness to me about how He worked in her life, and that He also loved me.  He made me deaf from birth, and He gave me a future, deaf wife. 

Her witness to me opened the doors to heavenly intervention.  That intervention was the gift of Salvation by the power of Jesus Christ who loved us first, enough to die on the Cross.  He paid the price for our sins and sets us free when we repent and accept Jesus as Lord of our lives.  Our clay jars, which is our physical bodies, may be deaf, but we hold the same, eternal treasure that is the Holy Spirit.

That treasure in us in the awesome power of the Holy Spirit.  The Holy Spirit works throughout our lives, and makes “good” everything that happens in our lives.  Everything that happens in our lives is for a purpose and work together for good.  Deaf or not, our lives become “good” when our “clay jars” are filled with God’s treasure.

2 Corinthians 4:7 “But we have this treasure in jars of clay, to show that the surpassing power belongs to God and not to us.”  (ESV)

Romans 8:28 “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.”  (KJV)
