Broken Vessels - October 2, 2023

You are never disqualified by your struggles. The scriptures says, “But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us” (2 Corinthians 4:7 NKJV).

Your treasure? A birthright, a spiritual heritage, a destiny. Yet these earthen vessels don’t match our treasure, do they? We have minds that wander. Bodies that age. Hearts that doubt. Eyes that lust. Convictions that crumble. We crack under pressure.

Who wants to use a broken vessel? God does. Broken soil gives crops. Broken alabaster jars give fragrance. The broken body of Christ on the cross is the light of the world. Which is precisely the point: God does great things through the greatly broken. It’s not the strength of the vessel that matters, it’s the strength of the One who can use it.
