clay pots

You have an infinite treasure–the light of my love–stored up in clay pots; heavenly beauty held within the stuff of earth, imperfections and all. Transformation comes because of my life in you. Daily stresses may leave you feeling battered and bruised, but my Son’s life in you means nothing can destroy you. In your suffering, be reminded of his death, but never lose sight of his indwelling Spirit, which is real life. Let every bit of pain, fatigue, and brokenness serve as a reminder of the life I have given you. Death and disintegration may be present in your day-to-day life, but your core identity is secure in my Son.

2 Corinthians 4:7-12
Letters to the Beloved
