How Cool! Us Believers—His Jars of Clay Today!

You and me—we be the basic packaging if you will. Him and His great work—that's the beautiful Treasure inside. 

And the Potter is still working on and in us. Ain't finished with us yet. I need to wear a sign that says.. Under Construction. 

I'm lookin' at 2 Corinthians 4:7-15. Have you turned and received Christ by faith? Don't put it off. What He's done for me, He'll gladly do for you (See John 1:12-13, and 3:3). The Apostle Paul said, "We have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us."
 

"Help us not to cloud God's glory, nor with self His light to dim; may each thought to Christ be captive, emptied to be filled with Him." —Anon.

P.  Father God, please fill and refill, touch, restore and bless. We know it's not about us, it's about Jesus being exalted and glorified. He so deserves it. We don't want to take any credit for positive stuff done by your power working.. and thereby bring glory to us. It's really about You. We want Your will done, and Your Kingdom to come.. And our's to go. So help me to boldly point to the Word of God with rejoicing, instead of to me today. Guide.. so I will not impede You or Your work in this world. There are so many that are still bound up in spiritual darkness without hope or joy. Make us part of the Solution so we won't become part of the problem instead. Wanna learn to love peeps everywhere n hate sin like You do. Please shine brightly through me. My flesh might not like it at all, but I think it's best that I decrease so that You would increase in and through this simple jar ..all day long. Yes, as You lead us believers on into good works, remind us not to seek our own, or affirmation, or praise, or applause from mere people.... for it's You that we desire to please. God, I just agree with Your Spirit and want to cooperate with Christ more.. far more than I have in the past. In Jesus name, let the brilliance of the great-treasure of Christ in me.. in us.. strongly shine through so that others can clearly see Your Way and follow Jesus. Thanks for keeping and using us Lord. Amen. 

I kinda like this YouVersion.com smartphone and tab Bible app. Perhaps you've been looking for a good one?
