2 Corinthians 4: Baked Dirt

What would make the early believers willing to be afflicted, perplexed, persecuted and struck down (4:8-9)? It had to be the treasure they carried inside! Our earthly vessels may not look like much, and they may be subject to decay and return to dust. But the treasure we carry enables us to “not lose heart” (4:16). Are you feeling afflicted, perplexed, persecuted or struck down? Today, focus on your treasure and be renewed.
