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.”
In this verse Paul reminds us that God’s way is to work through those who are weak or unimpressive in the world’s eyes. God constantly wants to saturate us and build us up. Saturate is to fill completely with something that permeates or pervades. We have the choice to be saturated with the love of God and for our jars of clay to be filled up every single day. He is waiting to saturate you in his spirit and to permeate your soul. You are his child who he absolutely cares most about, and looks past your flaws. Even when you are being saturated by other things, He is waiting to be the light in the darkness.
Question: If we have the opportunity to be saturated by the king of this universe why are we so hesitant at times? If we have the opportunity to be intimate with the father every single minute of the day why do we pass up the opportunity?
These are two questions that we need to think about and evaluate. I would be a hypocrite if I said I didn’t have to ask myself those questions. The question that I always find myself asking is God why do you love me? He always responds back with the same answer and says “Because you are my child and I adore you. I will never give up on you. That is why I love you.” God never gives up on you even when you think so; He is just waiting for your response.
Question: Every day we have the opportunity to be saturated in God’s power, but the ultimate question is do we want to exalt God or ourselves?
