He has planted eternity in the human heart, but even so,
people cannot see the whole scope of God’s workfrom beginning to end.
2 Corinthians 4:7-9
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.
And I confer on you a kingdom,
just as my Father conferred one on me.
Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you,
bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you.
“Come, follow me,” Jesus said,
“and I will make you fishers of men.”
“Test me in this,”
says the Lord Almighty,
“and see if I will not throw open
the floodgates of heaven
and pour out so much blessing
that you will not
have room enough for it.
He will take great delight in you,
He will quiet you with His love.
