Mark 4 - (correction - see 2 Corintians 4) For God, who said, " Let light shine out of darkness," made His light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the Knowledge of the glory (HIS JOY IN YOUR SALVATION) of God in the face of Christ. .... BUT, we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed. Perplexed, but not in despair. Persecuted, but not abandoned. Struck down, but not destroyed!
Why?.... because God loves you and can see something beautiful ... He sees the finished, beautiful woman that He is making in you and ALSO in your children.
church word: fellowship = friendship church word: glory = a satisfaction and joy church word: grace= treasure in jars of clay.... a beautiful gift.
