2 Corinthians 4:7
But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us.
Common, easily broken, made for daily use; these are some of the words to describe the utensil, or clay vessel here. Logic follows that the treasure stored in this ordinary thing cannot be of much regard either.
This treasure that is kept in clay vessels is the truth and the light of the Gospel of Jesus. In our shallowness we are more concerned about the packaging than the treasure—often not even opening it if it doesn’t appeal to the senses. We want our truth presented in a palatable and not too demanding way.
We are those clay vessels. This is not to disparage the human body that God gave us, but to compare the incomparable beauty of the treasure of the Gospel to the foolishness of even the best of us.
Why would God risk such a thing, placing such a thing of value in something so unworthy? It is a statement of grace that we would have such privilege. And primarily, it allows the vessel to become secondary to the treasure, as it should be—as it must be.
As we come closer to the celebration of the birth of our Savior we recognize the commonness of the circumstances. He came into a poor family, born in the worst of environments. And He was far from home; both the home of His earthly parents, and His rightful place on a throne at the right hand of God in Heaven. His witnesses here were His parents, and shepherds in the night watch who were considered common thieves and given the obligation to proclaim the birth of a king.
Sometimes the greatest of gifts come in the most common of packages. Be a common, easily broken, made for daily use vessel containing the greatest gift given to mankind.
