II Corinthians 4:7: "But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God and not of us"
Lest we be exalted above measure, lest we forget the pit from which we have been lifted, lest we forget Who maketh us to differ, lest we forget that in our flesh dwelleth no good thing, and lest we forget that without Him we can do nothing, we have this treasure of glory, this gift of life, this knowledge of the glory of God in earthen vessels! This treasure is not in vessels of fine wood to be admired. This treasure is in vessels of clay, worthless crumbling dirt! "Dust thou art, and to dust thou shalt return." Why? That the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us! That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God!
