Earthen Vessels

But we have this treasure in clay jars, so that it may be made clear that this extaordinary power belongs to God and does not come from us. II Cor. 4:7 (NRSV)

Thursdays on a week long mission trip seem to belong to ole scratch. People have tired bodies, short tempers, and are emotionally fatigued. If you're not careful the beauty of the gospel becomes lost in a cloud of darkness. Today we experienced all the symptoms of Thursday. We also saw the gospel blossom in the lives of many people. It is just crazy that God stores and pours the message of Christ from cheap, fragile containers like us. Grace really is amazing.

God, like a good parent, sometimes lets us get into sticky situations so that we may learn something from it and grow. Perhaps this mission trip was not for us to minister to those on the coast but for them to minister to us or for us to minister to each other. But in His wisdom, it's probably all three. Praying for travel mercy and can't wait for yall to get home!

For the Glory of the Lamb!
