2 Cor 4:7 (NHEB)
But we have this treasure in clay vessels, that the exceeding greatness of the power may be of God and not from ourselves.
The vintage believer might not look like much physically. He might not have an imposing physique nor a charismatic personality. But the least of the believers carry something worth much more than gold.
The philosophy of the world suggests that the more valuable a product is, the more glamourous its packaging should appear. However, we find a contrast in the believer, he has an earthen vessel, a mortal body, and yet he contains the immortal God (This is because we have not put on our glorified body yet). For the believer is not a refurbished sinner but a recreated saint. He is recreated in Christ Jesus for the Master’s good pleasure. Ephesians 2:10 puts it beautifully when it says, ‘For we are his workmanship, created in the Christ Jesus for good works that God had prepared beforehand so we may do them’ (NHEB).
Therefore, to understand the believer’s new life in Christ, a physical examination will not suffice. We don’t evaluate people by what they have or how they look (2 Cor 5:16 MSG). To understand this new life, we look at Jesus. We look at the Word (of God). We have received a regenerated spirit from God, one that is uncorrupted and is submitted to God. We have also received the Holy Spirit who now lives in us. Yes, we are the temple of the Holy Spirit (2 Cor 6:19)
A song goes thus:
Something more than gold (2x)
The Spirit of the Lord in the life of Man is something more than gold.
Go into today rejoicing in this knowledge. For Christ lives in us through the person of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit helps us to pray, He reveals Christ to us, He equips us with power, He is the assurance and the hope of the glory to come. Treasure this: rejoice.
Prayer: Thank you, Father, for the privilege to be filled with the Holy Spirit. Please help me live a Spirit-filled life. Amen.
