We now have this light shining in our hearts, but we ourselves are like fragile clay jars containing this great treasure. This makes it clear that our great power is from God, not from ourselves.
The most valuable message of the Bible is that of salvation through our savior, Jesus Christ. And according to plan, He has entrusted this message squarely on our shoulders to deliver to the world.
But spreading a message of hope to others isn’t always easy. Life is difficult, and we can often feel like we’re at the end of our rope. In these times we must remember that God never abandons us. So if you ever feel inadequate or even worthless, remember that we were all wonderfully made (Psalm 139:14) with a divine purpose. And though we may be weak and fallible by nature, God’s power—the same power that brought light into the darkness of space—lives within us.
God designed us to spread his Good News. He grants us the power to do great works in His name. And as long as we stay plugged into that power by regularly reading His Word and allowing His Spirit to renew us continually, people will see God through us.
