But we have this treasure in jars of clay, to show that the surpassing power belongs to God and not to us. We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed; always carrying in the body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be manifested in our bodies. For we who live are always being given over to death for Jesus’ sake, so that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh. 2Corinthians 4:7-11
I’ve written it before, and I think it needs to be the reminder in our home right now. Praise God for the glory of His word to teach us, build our character, shape us, and connect us to Him.
For the love of God is eternal, unconditional, just and perfect! May we always remember, live by, abide by and stand firm in His word.
