2 Corinthians 4:6–7 For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. 7 But we have this treasure in jars of clay, to show that the surpassing power belongs to God and not to us.
In one Sense we are lightning bugs in a dark world. We are lighting the world right where we are in our little dark space of life. Because of the grace of Christ, we are jars of clay with the treasure of His light shining in our hearts. We were once dead to anything spiritual our understanding of God darkened until in believing faith in Jesus caused his light of knowledge to shine upon us and in us. God empowers us daily to overcome hardships, attacks from the evil one, trials and at times persecution. This power to overcome and persevere against all odds comes from God to help us on our journey home to heaven.
