I preached this past Sunday from 2 Corinthians 4:7: “But we have this treasure in jars of clay, to show that the surpassing power belongs to God and not to us.” (ESV). I strove to drive home a simple but remarkable point – one of the most important thing I know about Christian ministry – God uses weak people! Here is the sermon skeleton.
