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.
