Empty-Jar-Jeremiah's Menu-Nothing apart from Him

[Photo by Tom Crew on Unsplash]

For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ. But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us.

2Corinthians 4:6-7 NIV

An empty… fragile… jar… made of clay…

that’s what I am… you are… we are…

Apart from Him we can do nothing…

“I am the vine; you are the branches. … apart from me you can do nothing. …”

John 15:5 NIV

Neither can we hold one thing together…

He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.

Colossians 1:17 NIV

Only by surrendering to the work of the Holy Spirit… let Him have His way within us… can we do anything… good…

For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the faith God has distributed to each of you.

Romans 12:3 NIV

Don’t forget… you are empty… in and of yourself…

Let Him fill you today… with His light… His love… His grace…

Amen…
