In Earthen Vessels

2 Corinthians 4:6-7
   For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
   But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.

1 Corinthians 6:19
   What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?

   We may not look like much on the outside, but what is most important is the treasure God puts in us when we are born again of His spirit. God has blessed us with His gift of holy spirit. We need to take care of our earthly bodies and feed our minds on the spiritual food of God's Word. We also need to utilize the spiritual gift that God has placed within us (Speak in Tongues MUCH!) and remember that the excellency of the power in us is of God.
