The Treasure in the Pot…

10 May

claypots.jpgToday, while I was reading 2 Corinthians 4, I began to think about what it is to be a clay pot.  For most people, it isn’t a stretch to look at ourselves as worn, cracked clay pots.  If we are honest, we see our flaws and we know our shortcomings.  But do we truly grasp the greatness of the treasure held in these clay pots?  Sometimes I wonder when the body of Christ at large will finally get fed up with living powerless empty meaningless lives!  I am not trying to brow beat the sheep, but come on people!  When life throws us a curve ball or things don’t go our way it’s like we all forget who we are and what God created us to be. 

There is a treasure in that clay pot that will shine a brilliant light that can penetrate every dark thing that will come our way.  That same light was so bright that the Israelites couldn’t even gaze upon Moses’s face when it shone upon them.  Did you know that the word of God says that our treasure is even greater than the light that shone on Moses’ face?  If you don’t believe me, you need to read 2 Corinthians 3.  I pray that as we read these scriptures today that God begins to reveal the greatness of what He has placed in us!  Each one of us has a prophetic destiny given directly to us from God.  Not only that, he has empowered us from on high to walk out lives with meaning and purpose that are filled with His manifest presence. 

If you want to know more about the treasure within your clay pot, post a comment and I’ll help you get started…
