The Apostle Paul wrote to the Christians in Corinth that the hope of the gospel is like a “treasure we hold in clay jars.” This metaphor reminds us of how fragile life can be. We will take a close look at how God works through our frailty and suffering to accomplish His purpose in our lives. God’s treasure is carried in clay jars, reminds us that God’s beauty and power can show up in our brokenness and God’s hope transcends our physical lives.
