Bible: 2 Cor 4:7-12

An Eternal Weight of Glory

4:7 But we have this treasure in clay jars, so that the extraordinary power 1  belongs to God and does not come from us. 4:8 We are experiencing trouble on every side, 2  but are not crushed; we are perplexed, 3  but not driven to despair; 4:9 we are persecuted, but not abandoned; 4  we are knocked down, 5  but not destroyed, 4:10 always carrying around in our body the death of Jesus, 6  so that the life of Jesus may also be made visible 7  in our body. 4:11 For we who are alive are constantly being handed over to death for Jesussake, so that the life of Jesus may also be made visible 8  in our mortal body. 9  4:12 As a result, 10  death is at work in us, but life is at work in you. 11
